    "My school is located in whats considered inner city.We are secured greatly by officials and school safety.My school is also small.This being to my avail because I have a better relationship with each adult in my school.The teachers are all very experienced with multiple degrees.My school is different than most schools because we operate more as a family. The teachers become your influential figure some never had.I have 2 favorite experiences in Excelsior.My first experience that is my favorite because it changed me is the day I grew a bond with one of my teachers.I was in an AP literature class. I would often just do my work and give the teacher the cold shoulder.She hadn't missed a day of school.However, my Junior year towards the middle I noticed she was their less. When she had arrived back, she had a weird discussion with my class. She spoke about why she was absent so much. It was because she was diagnosed with cancer and was really ill. I broke down that day.She was risking her health everyday to come in and teach us.It not only inspired me but, I now have a different level of respect for all adults that I cross paths with.My 2nd favorite experience in my school is a traditional day we have every year called " Jerky Turkey". Jerky turkey is the day before Thanksgiving.Everyone in the school prepares a dish and we all come together and eat. We also play games, talk about stuff that people don't know about us and other exciting activities.This makes up for the students that don't particularly have that bond with their own family.The Excelsior alumni also comes. The current student gets to meet the graduates and learn future strategies that they will need one day.Overall Jerky Turkey is when we all really open up to each other. If I could do it all over I would choose this school.There are many moments when I wished I transferred to somewhere else however, I always think if I transferred would I receive the same welcoming arms as I did in Excelsior Preparatory."

    "When someone thinks of a school in NY or my school in particular they automatically assume the school is bad. That is not the case because I believe that the school has it's own name but it's the students that create the name. I am in my senior year and my experience at this school has been phenomenal. When you surround yourself with the right people it always turns out great. What makes this school great to me is the teachers. They truly care for you as if you are their own child, they try their hardest with you because they want to see you succeed, they don't know the meaning of giving up and they try to plant that in our heads the minute you walk in."

    "I ahve met not just close friends but family here. In any school that I have ever asttended I have never had friends like the ones that i have here. The sport teams are are also great for me as well. I have met a lot of great people who ere just so nice to me and when I was the new one on the team they opened up to me and treated me like a sister. The coaches that I have had within ,y years here have jhelped me in tremendous ways as well. They taught me how to excell in sports that I know I could do. The unique thing about this school is just how well we connect with one another. We have four schools in the building and we all get along pretty well. Everyone knows everyone in the school. I would do the whiole high school experience here because it has definetly taught me a lot going to this school. It has helped me find out who I am in a way. This school has showed me why I should act the way I should and help guide into the right direction."

    "The social scene ghere is great in my opinion because everyone here has a friend at least one person to talk to. The student ionvovlment could be better but students aren't always interested on what's going on."

    "Most of the teachers within in the schools are very helpful and they make the lessons very interesting so that it helps the students engage more into the lesson. A lot of times what the teachers tend to do is they use real- life sitautions to grab the attention of the students so that they can put in their own input about the lesson. They are always avaliable for students that need extra help after school hours, sometimes they take off their lunch breaks so that they help out other students."
