    "The teachers In the school are there to help when you don't understand something. There are a few though that are only there for the job."

    "I'm not sure I would do it all over again. I'm not sure if it's my class, but there are a lot of fake people (then again, that's high school in general). There are definitely favorites in the school, too. I've also looked at the curriculum for other schools in the area and I'm shocked at how few AP classes they offer. The teachers, however, are fantastic. The administration is mediocre I guess, the staff is super friendly, and the bullying program is a laughing stock and completely ineffective. Bullying happens here but no one reports it and when they do, nothing is really done. They care, but they aren't effective."

    "The teachers are some of the best I've ever had. They're my favorite part of the school. I can't say I've ever had a bad one. Some classes are taught lecture style, but the teachers will repeat their point or further explain it if a student has a question. Every class I've had the teacher has been funny and creative in their approach to the material. Some are tough, but fair, and advice to future students: take Latin. Not one person in the school dislikes the teacher."

    "There are several teachers that are fantastic, especially in science. However, each year there has been a teacher who is very ineffective due to their age/health, lack of qualifications (this applies most prominently to an AP teacher hired from a failing local high school who has terribly inconsistent grading policies and was clearly not used to dealing with inquisitive students of this caliber), or commitment to being consistent from class to class."
