    "The food served is very distasteful, and for 11th and 12th grade, you are forced to eat at literally 10:30 in the morning and it has been that way for previous graduates for many years. The idea of QRT is to give students extra resource time, yet it just forces kids to go to specific classes and force them to lose points if they don't attend. In your senior year, you are forced to take an extremely irrelevant class called TOK and it doesn't teach you a single thing and the teacher takes his class way too serious. However the school well prepares students for the IB exam most of the time. The language department is varied, Spanish works out really well for students, German is well but students get lazy, french is the same, and Japanese students never take that class seriously. The school is very accepting of any religion, race, and sexual orientation. Any time there is "descrimination", I can honestly say it is based off of outside of school familiarity, personality, or intelligence. Basically, study, participate, behave, and take part in school activities and you will get through this school fine."

    "It's not the best education system but I can honestly say, that if you pay attention and do your homework, and are lucky enough to be in a class where other classmates don't disrupt the class as much, you can get alot done and learn a decent amount of information. It's strongest department lies between math and history for 11th and 12th graders"

    "Because majority of the teachers at Pittsburgh Obama are certified to teach the International Baccularate curriculum our students get a different view of the different subjects we learn. They are also devoted to their craft, and really love the students they teach."

    "I think the curriculum is great. I think the teachers make the kids push themselves to do better"
