    "Allderdice has great variety. Students can take classes in all different levels of difficulty. The CAS (gifted) program is terrific for gifted students. Students can also take classes at other levels, but they probably won't learn as much. The school is safe despite its reputation for violence, and a student with any level of street smarts will be fine. The school is dirty and in disrepair. Still, it's almost charming how old-school it is, with slate chalkboards and chipping paint. There are a plethora of extracurriculars and there is truly something for everyone to do outside of school. The diversity at Allderdice is truly unique. There is both handfulls of students who go to Ivy League or top ranked universities and a >10% dropout rate. Allderdice gets bad press it doesn't deserve and truly is a great school. Give it a chance and I think you will find it is a good place."

    "The school has excellent high level classes, and with any serious degree of studiousness and drive students can earn(and many have) acceptance to top level ivy league universities. You get out of it what you put in. It is true that the building itself is in some degree of disrepair and is relatively unclean, there still is the opportunity of a truly great education."

    "This shcool is one of the worst in the district with executions of violence among the students and a negative enviornment. It's horrible, the students are also very racist."
