    "My school is the best because they offer so many classes that are gear towards a career. These classes help prepare us towards what job we choose to go to in life. Also, these classes are rigorous and it helps us to more knowledgeable than the average student in New Jersey. These rigorous courses helps us to learn how to study and how to manage our time before we go to college. This will be an advantage when we enter college."

    "The people who I have met at this school have helped me become the person I am today. Everybody here is very open minded and encouraging. You can be who you really want to be here without worrying about being judged by others."

    "Because we have to apply and take a test to even be admitted to the school (25% of people were admitted the year I applied), every student here truly wants to be here. This is a county school, so the students come from so many different backgrounds- I have become friends with people I would never have been able to meet had I stayed in my town. Most of the teachers are awesome. Although we don't realize it, we are learning at a level so much higher than most of the public and private schools nearby. It's great to be surrrounded by motivated and involved students. However, students tend to form cliques within their own schools (there are five different schools), which often leads to fights and disagreements between the schools. Students here are incredibly competitive and smart, so you may be in the bottom half of your class here versus in the top 10% at your home district. Students from all five schools are incredibly cocky and opinionated, which sometimes causes some uncomfortable learning experiences (you will often get judged or hear snotty remarks if you don't understand something in class). Also, we don't have sports here, so people that do play sports play for their home district, which is a positive and negative. Perhaps the biggest thing on campus is the huge social media influence. Almost every student has been involved with issues or fights on social media- this is because there are no sports, so students find the next best way to be cool through twitter. The worst thing about UCVTS, and the thing that caused me to consider leaving several times, is the administration. The administration is great because they are focused on making us a better school... all the time. They are so focused on that, that they have become the most unsupportive and political adminstration. The campus is run by the freeholders, and it's pretty obvious. There is a lot of favoritism and politics with this administration. UCVTS is a great, but can improve."
