    "Nathaniel Hawthorne has a great learning environment. Teachers are professional, many activities to engage in and overall is a pretty good school. However, the bullying,harassment, etc. is a serious problem here. The lunch staff and some of the teachers show no discipline and are very unfair occasionally. The teachers tell you to sit down at your own table or else you will have detention. This is unfair. Teachers say that you should talk on your lunch time and not in class. "Lunch" is supposed to be the students free time and talk about stuff outside of school. These lunch staffs do not even give you the freedom to sit wherever you want, OR TALK. And if you get caught sitting in the wrong table, you get detention. Also, many of the teachers are unfair and have favorites. They also mistakenly wrong your for stuff that you did not do and do not even let you have a chance to explain. This school needs to get better staff,teachers,etc. Whatever needs to get more disciplinary attention."

    "I saw that some of the teachers at this school were more acceptant of their students. However, what was horrifying of this school was that their were incidents of bullying, harassment, and discrimination. The pupils curse excessively and bully their peers by their status. I have been the frequent victim of their harassment. Including how they used as "property" and purged me out like I was "toxic." Many of the adults do not respect the pupils as if they were adults, instead they also engage in that shallow, hypocritical behavior that involves putting the students down and throwing them into the detention table as the students would not quiet down. The students then continue to act shallowly by making fun of other people. Some of the teachers do not provide a happy learning environment, instead they blame and yell at the students as if they were absolutely "petulant." The students in retaliation, talk back at the adults and still act foolishly despite the disciplining consequences. Age discrimination is a common issue present in this school. A lot of the students act immature, shallow, and mean while the adults act choleric, unfair, and hypocritical around students."

    "I am a parent of a student presently the teachers are helpful and the principal is awsome. But.....The secretarys or aids that work in the general office are rude and nasty. They never say good morning and you always have to ask them can someone help me numerous times before they come to your aid. If they dont like there job they need to quit."

    "I've been a student at 74 for a good chunk of time. I personally think it's an excellent school. The teachers are very professional and experienced. However, getting to each class is a bit of a problem in this school. It is very crowded and is a bit of a challenge to transition from each class. Other than that, an excellent school."
