    "Whitney M. Young High School is the truly the best. Students come from all over the city creating a diverse environment where everyone learns from one another outside the class. With all the great extracurricular activities, every student has the opportunity to take part in something that interests them. No other school is like Whitney M. Young and I would love to relive it."

    "I would say I love the diversity that I was exposed to at this school and how the teachers and parents support you in whatever idea you have."

    "I transferred here because it was my first choice but I got rejected originally. My fallback school during freshman year was awful-- I should clarify, the education was amazing, every teacher was great, but there was way too much homework, I stayed up anywhere from 12-4 a.m. on a regular basis, the administration was mean- I couldn't walk into the main office without feeling like crawling into a hole. I was sort of sad leaving because I was leaving the few friends I had worked so hard to make, but I knew that Whitney was a much better deal and that I really didn't have much of a choice in terms of cost. Whitney Young is so welcoming and warm. I can confidently be myself without worrying about getting a detention. It is so diverse. I am just so much more comfortable here than I was at my old school. If I were to do high school over, I might go to a different cps school. I'm not sure, I'd have to think about it. Whitney teachers give too much homework; it is nothing like my old school, but I still go to bed at midnight and seriously it is not ok that any high schoolers go to bed anytime later than 10. Really. It is not healthy, we need at least 9 hours of sleep, not to stay awake, but to develop and keep our immune system healthy. Not to mention all the mental health problems that develop from stress and sleeplessness. Whitney also isn't organized. These two points aren't enough to make me want to go to a different school though. The other school in my mind is a mile away from my house as opposed to an hour, so it is mostly a convenience factor."

    "Whitney Young has a unique vibe. There are many instances where I feel like I belong, but there are some instances where it's easy to get lost in the community. Clubs are a great way to stay connected with people, but the community has kind of pushed me away from wanting to come back."

    "I love how diverse the community at Whitney Young is. It showed me a new perspective on life than what my grammar school did. I learned so many cultures, met so many people, lived through so many experiences. Wow! I love the dynamics and the many personalities that I encountered here! It's amazing!"
