    "Almost all teachers are wonderful, but some are not"

    "Overall, Potsdam High School has a great array of teachers. They love to engage students seeking a deeper understanding of course material and try to make themselves as available as possible for extra help. However, due to Regents exams and teacher evaluations through test grades they seem to teach for the test more than the benefit of the students. Also there are some... unorthodox teachers whose styles are very inflexible and suited for a narrow category of students. For instance, I took a class where we were not allowed to take notes, and another class where the tests did not cover the main points of the chapter, but superfluous details one would have to have a photographic memory to remember from the book."

    "Compared to many schools in the area, Postdam High School is, in my opinion, the best. For a small, rural community, it has a lot of different kinds of people. There are the very rural families, like the ones that run the farm half a mile down the road from my house, and kids of college professors whose parents probably work at one of the two colleges in Potsdam. It can get dull being around the same 100 or so kids for 12 years of school, but the small size means that everyone knows everyone else. This makes it easier to find friend groups and work with different people. In all, yes, this is a pretty great school, but after living here for my whole life, I can't wait to leave for college."

    "After graduating from Potsdam, I felt as though I was ready academically, however I didn't feel fully prepared in a real world setting. I was confident I would be able to handle the course load at my university, but I had never learned how to handle finances, write a resume, or apply for any type of job."
