    "The teachers are very open and understanding to their students needs. They make sure that every student has understood and obtain the required insight of the material and if not will continue to go over the topic until everyone has clearly understood."

    "The parents have helped the school in some ways like donation and suggestions for school events. They are basically the people behind the scenes who are secretly helping our school succeed. Without them, the school would not become the way it is today."

    "This school has much positive recognition as one of the top schools of NYC. It even gets increasing numbers of applicants each year. The only thing it lacks is a building of its own. Every other thing is at its best. For instance, the staff treat the students with much respect and maintain a happy atmosphere all year round. It does the best it can with the little resources it has. Being in student government I have a great outlook of the potentials and things my school offers. We increase school spirit and emphasis the sense of everyone being a family."

    "Although the school lives up to its name and focuses extensively on American History, however, completely lacks in providing proper education on other school subjects. The science and math departments are the worst. There's one teacher per subject, thus lacking the flexibility needed for the students and teachers. One teacher cannot simply teach 5 to 6 classes and this impacts the performance of the students. In addition, some of the teachers are not qualified enough to teach certain subjects. For example, from personal experience, AP English Language was quite a disaster as the instructor was clueless on how to teach the curriculum and prepare the students for the exam, thus resulting in poor grades on the AP Exam. Furthermore, the school lacks organization in terms of preparing schedules for the students. Students are expected to practically live by the counselors' offices for the first two weeks in order to make simple changes. Lastly, the school is physically not big enough for the number of students it accepts, therefore, making the school life difficult when it comes to learning properly."
