    "Some teachers are lazy and sometimes I feel like I learned nothing. However, some classes are fun, challenging, and I get a lot out of them. The curriculum is strongly correlated with common core so teachers are forced to teach by those rules instead of teaching what they want to teach and how they want to teach it, which most likely contributes to the laziness. However there are still a lot of teachers that are great at what they do. The scheduling process is generally painless and even if a teacher won't sign you into a class, it's relatively easy to override them. There is a ton of homework that is hard to juggle with activities, sports, work, etc."

    "There are a lot of teachers who really love what they do and take teaching seriously, and it is hard to choose my favorite teacher. However, there are also those who have the same attitude as seniors and are lazy and don't care and don't teach at all."

    "Of all the schools I have been to (there have been a lot), my all-time favorite teacher was my tenth grade history teacher at Montour. He was knowledgeable and passionate and widely respected by his students. He was what inspired my love for history and is a large part in why I decided to study it in college. He was always very kind yet equally stern and he constantly pushed us to do better. He was an exceptional teacher and there are many like him at Montour High School. However, no system is without its flaws and while the school has many commendable teachers, it also has several teachers who are not as student oriented."

    "There is a lot of technology and it's sort of shoved upon everyone and we are forced to use it even though it's completely unnecessary and sometimes distracting from our education. The stiff curriculum prevents teachers from developing a teaching style that works for them and could make them more successful. Everyone is really nice and involved in the activities going on around the school. If you don't have a club that suits you, they are very open to new ideas and it's easy to start your own club if you can find people with similar interests. I feel like I only learn in some of my classes depending on the quality of the teacher. Also, there is a lot of favoritism and politics which takes away from equality and it's very evident. If the principals don't know your name, you aren't important in their eyes."

    "This school's budget is massive. The money and resources they have access to is ridiculous (in a good way). Each student is equipped with their own personally Chromebook and there is a Smart Board in every classroom."
