    "I have been attending Barack Obama Academy of International Studies since the 6th grade. During my time here I have noticed many positive but also negative things regarding academics, administration, teachers, and just the school overall. One extremely positive aspect about this school is that it has an IB curriculum. Being involved the International Baccalaureate program has really taught me differently than most public schools and has put me ahead of most high school students throughout the state. But one negative has been the Administration. Of course our Administration is extremely involved with the students but there have been many cases where they should have either reacted differently or taken a different route rather than what they chose. But overall, my experience with Barack Obama Academy of International Studies has been positive. This school has really brought me out of my shell and has prepared me for my future beyond high school."

    "I've been going to Barack Obama Academy since the 6th grade and have seen all the ups and downs of this school. I am apart of the first generation of students to attend Barack Obama Academy at the Peabody building and the last generation to attend it at the Schenley High school building. Overall I must say I have loved my experience there. The teachers truly do care and are able to assist you every step of the way. They also make it assignments flexible enough for you to turn them in on time and they are also very understanding. Some of the down falls are that they some times do not fully prepare you for what is to come next and other teachers just do not teach."

    "I loved that one of the main focus to get into the school was language.I have taken Spanish for up to 4 years and to switch from a different school and still be able to understand what was going on was great for me. The atmosphere of the school was so welcoming I came from a suburban school to a public school and it was like I was being welcomed into a family"

    "This is one of the best public schools in Pittsburgh. The teachers care less about test grades and more about students learning. The Principal takes a very active roll and he really cares about the students. He knows the first and last name of every student that walks through the door. The school is full IB so the classes are vigorous and grade appropriate. This school does a good job maintaining the arts in this school in regards to budget cuts."
