    "I was actually just talking to a friend recently and I literally used the phrase "it's the worst". Although I had a good experience with many of my teachers, everything else was a nightmare. Since I was in mainly advanced classes the majority of my time there, everyone was incredibly competitive. I found myself constantly stressed about school, without really knowing why. Looking back, I'd say it was mostly because everyone around me was freaking out and making everything school-related seem like life or death. You'd think that having thousands of students in a school would make it easier to have friends - so many options!! -- but NOPE. This school is the clique-iest of all. AP kids who pushed themselves past their limits. Kids in lower level classes who didn't care about school. The track and field kids. The music kids. Theatre kids. Everyone was split up into different groups, and if you didn't fit into one, you were on your own. I pretty much had a core group of friends that i stuck with from middle school for the rest of my high school years as well. I made a few friends outside of this group as well, who also had a hard time fitting into any of these groups. A great thing about this school is all of the clubs and activities available. It's also a pretty simple process to start your own club/organization. My sister and her friend started a yoga club pretty easily and it gained a solid amount of members over time. I actively attended and participated in multiple clubs, even earning titles such as president, vice president, and secretary, including environmental awareness club, the creative writing club, and the club for learning about volunteer/community service activities. To name a few others there was an anime club, a skii club, a step team, an art club, photography club, a club for people who like the British TV show Doctor Who, and more. The music and theatre programs at my high school were also extremely advanced and competitive. oh no I'm running out of"

    "I had multiple teachers go out of their way to help me. When I was going through personal issues, and even after having to drop their class, one of my teachers kept in contact with me to check in on how I was doing. I was an honors student taking mainly honors or AP courses, so I feel that i had a different educational experience at this school than the majority. It's a very big high school with over 3,000 students. Our area is not exactly known for its economic stability, to say the least. A lot of the families here are struggling to get by. The majority of /my/ teachers gave fun, interesting, interactive lectures in class, which led me to do well in all of my subjects. A grade below 90 was rare for me. However, after I went through emotional difficulties in my junior year, I was forced to drop out of all unrequired classes and take time to heal myself. In my junior year the only classes I took were English, US History and P.E. My senior year also didn't go by so well for me. I started out in a few AP courses, but due to all the stress and emotional difficulty I was having, I had to drop down to regular level courses. My AP Government teacher was funny and interesting to listen to, but after I got dropped down to Participation in Government I had an awful experience. The teacher was disrespectful to students, didn't give interactive lessons, and did not show any sympathy or care for my disabilities. After experiencing this first-hand, I could now relate to my friends who had this issue. For the most part, I'd say that the teachers were kind, intelligent, and just overall good. But the lower level classes were much less stimulating and it was pretty obvious that the teachers were not very passionate about their jobs or teaching in general. It's a bit sad, because it takes away from the learning experience of the student."

    "The academics offered are great. Teachers were well qualified in my experience, and I always got excellent grades on state exams because of this. Unfortunately I was sucked into the AP/honors student crowd, due to my high GPA. I did not enjoy that at all. It was way too competitive and stressful. Lot's of homework every night, and feeling pressured to take classes past my comfort zone. Popular classes among my peers were anything AP. Anything that'll make them look good to colleges. AP chem, APUSH, AP Gov, AP comparative gov, AP statistics, AP biology, AP art history, AP environmental science, etc. There was also the Philharmonia orchestra --our school's top , most advanced-playing orchestra. Everyone in this group was insanely good and competitive -- they'd go on to play as a group in Rochester and Carnegie Hall and community events and more. I always had a natural talent for playing the viola, so I was accepted into this group without having to audition (like one normally would). However, I was immediately overwhelmed starting on my first day. Just about everyone else in the group had either been playing since they were 3 or had been taking private lessons for 10 years. My experience at this school wore me out and led me to fall into deep emotional problems. I suffered immensely from major depressive disorder and anxiety, even ending up having to stay in a hospital for 3 weeks to help get me stabilized. I had many friends who suffered from similar issues (not as intensely, but still enough of an issue to say it was a serious problem) and it was a very unpleasant experience for the most part. I have since graduated, but i now have a friend who is a senior this year and she is struggling from the same difficulties that I had gone through. It's sad to think that this is how it's going to be for years to come. I just wish people would stop putting so much pressure on grades. Tests and quizzes don't define one's intelligence. It's not fair to make it seem that way."
