    "Students of all ethnicities and sexually origins are welcome at the school. There is no "majority" at the school. Everyone is accepted as they are and I've never been bullied or seen it occur."

    "Teachers at STEM work to help students not only learn the required material but also to go beyond that and help us understand why we are learning it, all while enjoying the process. Teachers are always readily available before and after school and take time out of their schedule to help kids with problems in and out of school."

    "The academics don't offer a plethora of choices but the ones available are strong academically. The physics lab and biomed lab are extremely popular, just like the psychology and forensic lab. The workload is heavy but doable for those that manage their time wisely."

    "Although the school doesn't have athletic teams, students are able to play for their home schools. One great experience I've had is participating in the ski bus program. I met many new friends during that time and it's a great way to relax before starting homework. The diversity alone is reason enough to choose this school if I could do it all over again. I've learned about so many different cultures and beliefs from students in and out of school. Also everyone is incredibly friendly."

    "Tesla STEM is a very academically oriented high school. If you are not attending for this reason, then I would urge students to go elsewhere. Not only will they find better social and athletic opportunities, there will be a more accepting environment for students who aren't as focused toward school. Also, parents, please do not send your kids here just because you hear that Tesla is a good school. There are a limited number of spaces, and the program is meant for students who are motivated and willing to take advantage of what is offered, not students whose parents force them to show up and just take up space in class. As a small school, Tesla STEM has a very different social experience than other schools. The students are much nerdier than usual because of the STEM focus, and the small class results in less choices for social groups. While there may be variety in interests, you won't have nearly as easy of a time finding a new group of friends as you would at other high schools. Also, if you don't fit into one of the groups very well, the social scene can feel very lacking. This brings up another issue that can happen at Tesla STEM. Due to the small number of students and classes available, there is usually a group of fifteen or more peers that you will have all six classes with, and become very close friends with as a result. However, it is possible to end up in an uncommon class schedule, in which case you won't really be as much of a member in this tightly knit group. On the other hand, when you are in such a tightly linked group of students, it's hard to meet people outside of your own classes if you aren't in clubs or other school activities. Even though there were only 150 students in the entire class, after four years there were still probably thirty or more whom I never had class with, and over fifty who I never really got to know beyond name. If you identify as nerdy, however, then you'll find plenty of friends here and a very welcoming environment."
