    "I felt the staff of this school, especially the teachers, were very unprofessional. They did not communicate effectively with parents, treated the students terribly (through a paper at a student), and did not provide a rigorous curriculum. The administration was only concerned with athletics and their football field being built."

    "I loved attending this school. All the students seemed to get along 80% of the time which I believe is amazing in a high school. It definetly has the tools for students to learn. Teachers and staff are great, they treat students with respect and all of the clubs and organizations make it very accesible to incorporate yourselfs with them. Not like my middle school, Silver Lakes which was horrible, and clubs were really only advertised to 'certain students'."

    "J.P. Taravella made my high school more than memorable. The clubs and activities(especially our award winning Drama club)I was involved in made me want to get up and go in the morning where I otherwise may have just hit the snooze button. The teachers I had were a major part of my experience, they taught me more than just the curriculum but life lessons. They weren't just your teachers, they were your mentors and your counselors when need be. Shawn Cerra was also the most involved principal I've ever heard of. It was really something to see him show up at our Drama state competition. Taravella deserves the 20,000!"
