    "I've always gotten all the classes I signed up for. The process is efficient and intuitive. The workload depends on the classes you're taking and you as a person. I never thought there was that much work in my classes and I've always taken the highest lanes (the school divides most subjects into lanes based on rigor; for example, in math we have three lanes: regular, advanced, and honors, and you can skip up or drop down lanes within or across grade levels to find the pace that fits you). The faculty generally makes it easy to change lanes, however, you cannot change classes because of the teacher. All of the classes I've taken have prepared me well for whatever standardized tests I've had to take (SAT II and AP tests)."

    "my overall experience at Gunn wasn't the best considering I went during the times of the suicides, but if I was to pretend those horrid events never happened, Gunn was a pretty great place. I had a great time meeting people and the atmosphere and school spirit is incredible."
