    "People are incredibly stressed out because there is a lot of pressure to do well academically. While for some people this pressure can be a negative catalyst I always found that it pushed me to achieve my full academic potential and prepared me for college in the best way possible."

    "Like any school there will be amazing teachers and horrible ones. The amazing thing about Palo Alto High School is that the horrible teachers are in the minority, and are often found teaching the classes where students can easily self-teach themselves the material. With an unbelievable amount of funding, Palo Alto teachers are able to interweave technology with the coursework and bring in entertaining guests and schedule fun activities."
