    "The English department is incredible, especially the honors teachers. The math and science departments are hit/miss, with some teachers (Dancho!) being amazing, and others (Tully) not so much. History department is full of superstars like Ms. Lynch and Ms. Cerone. Language department is 50/50, because the Spanish program is incredible, but the French program is lacking at the higher levels. Overall, if you stick to old favorites (Balaschak, Lynch, Dancho, Pollak, Price, Chiang), and avoid more questionable teachers (Batastini, Tully, Erickson), you should be fine."

    "Some teachers are better than others. Some give busy work and unfair assessments, while others give interesting lessons. It is easy to seek out the best teachers. And the ones that are good are great!"

    "Some of the administration is great--Ms. Kobalynski got me through my years there. English teachers are the best people in the world, especially Pollak, Balaschak, and Hackmeyer. Some of the teachers do suck, but you can get through it. Too much pressure placed on getting into an "elite college", however, and state schools are under appreciated. The underground queer community is great and super supportive, and the administration is openly pro-queer rights. (Gender neutral bathrooms are located by the gym) The administration (particularly Ms. Petrosino and Mr. Heitmann) are not sensitive to mental health issues and clearly need more education on the matter. Overall, amazing education, and even though the student body can be cookie cutter, the girls are all very nice. The boys are (mostly) all fratty and preppy, but you can find your people outside of them"
