    "I love the small environment and connection between the students and teachers. Everyone is so nice and faculty make you feel at home. I'm very happy I chose this school for my studies because it's been able to grow my knowledge and prepare myself for college."

    "Teachers were in general pretty great. They cared about the students, and the workload was nothing an average student couldn't handle"

    "I was pretty much the only Asian girl in my school so I feel like it was just harder for me to relate to everybody else, but despite a few ignorant students like there always are, the general population didn't make try to intentionally make me feel outed. However, I've seen so much bullying going on with students who people just viewed as weaker or "gay.""

    "This school has a lot of ups and a little bit of downs. The school is great because it's such a small school so you get to know most of the people that got there. It also a good school because you get to interact more with the teachers and get involve. A lot of the staff members truly do care about the students. Every 2 weeks there is a fiesta Friday which is a get together of the whole school and we all have to go to the front of the school. Fiesta Friday includes music, sports, games and food. I think this is what makes Daniel Pearl Magnet High School so unique. One of the down sides to this school is that there are not a lot of classes in which students can take like AP classes. It such a small school so there are a lot of kids who want to get into the available AP classes which makes it even harder to get in because it's so competitive. Overall this school makes your high school experience seem great!"
