    "Most teachers at the school are knowledgeable at what they're teaching, but there is the occasional interim teacher or even a permanent teacher who know how to do what they teach, but fail to teach it well to the students. I took a precalculus class last year and had such a difficult time with the class that I got a mediocre grade. However this year, I am taking calculus and am reviewing what I had tried to learn last year and I am doing so much better. The precalculus teacher just sped through the notes and left me with nothing but worksheets instead of helping us solve them step by step. The calculus teacher helps me when teaching new material and makes it very easy for me to learn. Half the teachers here either drone on and lecture for 50 minutes while others engage in very fun and interactive classes. So the "it's great" rating goes to the teachers who genuinely care about their students."

    "The school recently built a new science building and it is so sleek and equipped to help students who are interested in the sciences. I personally am not one of those people, but it has helped make the sciences more approachable as there is new equipment for hands-on experiences. There is also a reservation behind the school that allows us to have classes outside. Ti think that the school is becoming more and more open to less traditional styles of education and I really enjoy that."

    "High school was the worst four years of my life, and a lot of that is because of this school. The administration is one big mess, and scheduling is an absolute nightmare. A lot of the policies are just ridiculous, not all the teachers are even 'okay', and I just feel like the academic standards aren't as high in the classrooms as they we say they are. Unless you're in AP, you aren't being taken very seriously. They could put more effort into the school, make support services more available and approachable. I will say the headmaster is great. He's only been there for four years but is very approachable and listens to student concerns and takes action."

    "There are some really stunning teachers at this school, and there are some really bad ones as well that will ruin the whole experience for you. It all kind of comes down to luck. Most teachers will try to cater to different learning styles and express the content in a number of different ways, but some just lecture you and hope for the best. Many of the teachers are really involved in the school community and with clubs."
