    "The teachers at this school are very great. They have been there a long time which helps with the different ideas to teach subjects. Teachers at Med High also ling in technology as much as they can because the world is advancing. Overall, there is not too much to complain about."

    "The teahers at my school are great. They keep up with students, and are always there to help and get tutoring. The teaching styles differ between teachers so everyone can find a teacher that works best for there learning ability. They stay after school and always have their doors open to help their students achieve academic greatness and just to talk to if a student just wants someone to talk to. Teachers also stay on top of their work and always have test,quizes, and homework graded within the week of taking it."

    "This school has a great amount of diversity from sexual orientation, to ethnic and religious diversity. It allows the students to meet different types of people who all have a common goal. Going to a Medical oriented high school most of the students at this school all wish to be apart of the medical field in one way or another. This is great because just like in medicine we are meeting and befriending people of many backgrounds. The students are very involved in clubs and school activities form fundraisers to dances. With very little peer pressure the only pressure they would press on fellow classmates is positive getting fellow peers to complete assignments and do well on school related topics as well as clubs."

    "This school is the best and I am probably being biased but I genuinely believe it. It is small but very tightly knit. The bullying is not as bad as the other schools. Since there are a lot of races, the students' acceptance to different cultures and traditions is very positive."

    "Med High has definitely prepared me for college and my further education. I learned time management and how to complete any given task regardless of its difficulty. With ones knowledge and outside resources, any student can accomplish anything. I met amazing people, friends, teachers, and staff that till this day still ask about me and how I'm doing. Even though it was an all academic school, the students still learned how to have fun with student activities and organizations. It was a diverse school, where everyone brought each other up and created a "family". I made many memories and met goals that I aspired as a freshman back in 2012 such as receiving Magna Cum Laude, perfect attendance, and a presidential award. I have been involved in multiple organizations and was parliamentarian for a charity, where I grew as a person and gave back to the community. Over all I loved this school."
