    "The best thing about GHS was the diversity, but that's going away. The town is mostly Hispanic now, with a few Polish/Albanians/Macedonians. The work was very easy, this year my only difficult class was marine bio. The food was terrible, there was a picture of moldy chicken going around on twitter. My guidance counselor didn't help me much, I did most of my college work on my own. Most kids in this school are thugs, or smart and snobby."

    "This school was very diverse, but it's mostly Hispanic today. People are actually more racist to white people than minorities. Everyone is usually fine with other races. There's A LOT of peer pressure to smoke weed. I don't know anyone besides myself who hasn't tried it! Most people drink, too."

    "The teachers in Garfield High School vary in the lessons they teach and the students they have. You could find yourself in a class you love in the beginning of the day but by the end of it you could find yourself in a class that you absolutely hate."

    "There's a couple of good teachers, but most are terrible. They aren't able to control the students, and the classes are unbelievably loud. Everyone's always on their phones, and the work is very easy."

    "Even though our classes are easy, we do have many options. You fill out a form, and check off the electives you want. As a senior, I got four."
