    "Although it may have bad reviews and a lot of negative comments, Towers High School is truly a great school. This school is unique because of the students here. Every student has their own potential that is unlimited and able to reach. Their self-esteem and drive may be lowered because of the comments that are made. Also, because of the negative reputation that is supposed to be uphold. The school can be even more unique if these students prevail and chase that potential. Change the minds of the doubters, and allow themselves to become aware of the rejection that they receive just because they attend a lower performing high school. Show people that they, too, can earn the same opportunities that students from the top schools are given. My experience at this school has been amazing. I have grown and matured so much over the past four years. Both mentally and emotionally. I came into high school already defeated, because of what people were telling me about my school. Then actually seeing what they were talking about made it worse and kind of lowered my self-esteem. As I got older and matured, I quickly realized what their problem was. Our self-esteem was low. There was no motivation from our peers because all they did was belittle each other. People being judged every day, making insecurities about people that shouldn't even be there. After realizing all of these things, it became good motivation. I took it upon myself to do the opposite of what my classmates were doing and to go against the odds. Second semester of my 9th grade year I began to take accelerated classes and slowly became a recognizable student from earning AB Honor Roll. From 10th grade until now as a senior, I have took almost every accelerated and Advance Placement course at Towers High School. I am now on the right track to graduate and attend my dream school, Morehouse College in the fall of 2016. My experience at Towers High School has been great, and I would definitely do it again if I could."

    "The students here is not what makes the school great. It is majority of the staff. The parents of the students don't do much to make the students do better but if a student naturally wants to learn then he or she will quickly find out that the school has many opportunities and programs for the student to participate and excel in."

    "The teachers at Towers High School are amazing. Personally, I have great relationships with a few of my teachers. The opportunity to bond and become close with the teachers are out there because they are willing to have these relationships. I can't speak for every student, but the teaching styles that I have experienced were beneficial. The teaching styles are very easy to adapt to. They try their best to teach the material as simple as they can. Most of the teachers that I have close relationships with are pretty knowledgeable. It is quite easy to have decent intellectual conversations with them. I am always given good advice and offered pearled wisdom from them. This shows how interested in the student they are. Our teachers want to see us succeed and do well for ourselves. If a teacher sees potential in student, then they will let that student know and try their hardest to bring that potential out. Communication is a great example. Very often, teachers set up group chats for their class to notify them about homework assignments, the next quiz or test, and when to study. This is so helpful because it takes so much stress away because we no longer have to worry about what is next for that class and when to be prepared."

    "The teachers here at Towers High School really care about students but the students do not care enough to be engaged like they should be. The teachers work extremely well with students that want to learn and have a good future."

    "The teachers at my school are more focused on being your friend than rather being your teacher. Some teachers don't teach at all in the classrooms."
