    "This school is horrible. The only thing keeping me from dropping out is my CTP class. The only time the administration will listen is if you're smart, attractive, white, and/or play sports. The school is dirty. If you want to do anything that doesn't relate to agriculture then don't expect anything good because literally everything (field trips, funding, etc) goes to that department."

    "For the most part, Octorara High a School was pretty alright. I was in FFA, Future Farmers of America, all throughout high school. We did some great things my freshman year because the teacher was focused and all of the seniors that were part of it all lived on farms and took it seriously. Unfortunately the other students thought this club was just a joke and as easy A so after my freshman year, it unfortunately turned into a joke. After seeing a very well functioning FFA chapter and how involved they are with their community and how active they are as a chapter, I want the same for my high school."

    "I loved the small school feel and all of my classmates and I are really connected. Also all of the teachers are very helpful and inspiring."

    "I've had an okay experience with this school. Not exactly the greatest. It's a pretty dirty school, to begin with. They don't clean the floors, there are roaches and mice (some of their lockers are broken and have holes in them, and my friend last year had a mouse eat through her lunch box and eat her lunch. They wouldn't let her change her locker), there's a bathroom stall in one of the upstairs girls bathrooms that doesn't have a one of those toilet paper holders (it broke a year or two ago and they never replaced it...). There are broken bathroom door stalls that won't shut, some don't have locks (particularly in the girls' locker room), and the girls' locker room leaves a lot to be desired. There's also no air conditioning in the junior high, and the heat seems to constantly be broken (some classrooms, the heater won't work and only spits out cold air. Oh, and we have iPads that everyone hates. You can't write an essay on an iPad."
