    "I attended Potomac for 13 years -- I was a lifer -- and had an overall amazing experience. My peers, the campus, the clubs that I was a part of -- they were all excellent. The school was a bit cliquey but each class got along very well. My teachers, above all, were phenomenal. I still keep in touch with teachers from all 4 divisions, and have even met up with them outside of school to catch up. Furthermore, I always felt respected and appreciated on campus. I love and miss this school dearly."

    "I have been at Potomac for 8 years and have had only 2 incidents of bullying that were stopped immediately. And students expelled for bullying. Potomac is the best school for kids who are willing to work and learn as well as have lots of fun. Potomac is very diverse and is making strides in learning as well as social groups 5 out of 5 GO PANTHERS!!"

    "The Potomac School's small size and dedicated faculty aid make the challenging course work exciting and frame the curriculum as a challenge rather than a chore. However, the lack of racial, religious, socioeconomic, and cultural diversity can be constricting for students. Students receiving financial aid to attend often feel somewhat separated from their peers, as do students of minority groups. The school has been working, in recent years, to expand their diversity programs and celebrate all cultures, ethnicities, races, and religions in respectful manners. The school works to establish a safe and welcoming environment for students and faculty to work together within a culture of inclusion and mutual excitement for each other's successes. The facilities are safe, clean, beautiful, and the food is excellent. Overall, an excellent school that works to create well-rounded citizens with critical thinking and problem solving skills rather than single-minded test-takers."

    "No other school in the area can match the sense of community at Potomac. Truly a friendly environment and unfortunately one that many kids take for granted here."

    "Top notch teachers. You will have a few bad apples throughout your Potomac education but overall I think most teachers genuinely care about their students. The english teachers in particular are spectacular."
