    "Well.....I'll make a long story short. The Spanish teacher at this school is very rude. she doesn't let her students get a drink of water and then opens up a bottle of water and then starts drinking a bottle of water in front of the child who just asked for a drink. Seriously, she needs an etiquette class! She has not only demeaned my child in many ways, but has asked the fellow students to contribute on disrespectful rants towards my child and other children. I'm just amazed that this teacher would treat her students like she does. I have heard a million complaints about her yet none of the parents complain."

    "Ponce is a great school by any measure. The Principal, Ms. Chang, is an amazing leader and has beautified the grounds and atmosphere enormously. There are not a lot of involved parents but the ones who do show up to help out are great. The IB Program has a lot of solid teachers and the staff at Ponce is second to none. Don't hesitate to send you child to school here- it is a really great school."

    "Whenever you walk into the school, the staff has a smile on the face. They are very helpful and care for their students. The director is incredible and met the challenge of transforming a school catering a very diverse student population, teaching kids from any disadvantaged neighborhood together with gifted children in an IB middle school program. Yes, there is way to improve on the organization, but the most important is that the heart of the staff is on the right place. Students get a hug when they need it but they are also taught discipline and self confidence. Students that get kicked out of neighboring schools, such as Carver, tend to regain confidence and growth at Ponce de Leon. This is not because Ponce de Leon is an easier school, it is just because the school philosophy is warm and welcoming, valuing each student at a fundamental level. This is what encourages students to give their best and regain confidence in themselves. I appreciate the individual approach to counseling, which high school is best for your child."

    "I remember sitting at the classroom and learning through multiple lectures. Meeting teachers and students alike in which are peculiar and yet cunning. I remember meeting friends and friends of friends that have multiple characteristics. Some per say can be a bit annoying. Others are what you can say a wisecrack. Some are shy and others are outspoken. I remember the memories we shared. Through thick and thin, we stand our ground. I remembered the trouble makers and the happy go lucky people. (ei. Fieldtripper, point dexter, skipper, vultures, chicken foot gang, g the loudest, Einstein, et cetera) All I can say is that there are times when you are paired up with people whom can be a great asset and others not so much. There are times when you are pit into real life situations and such which can prepare you for the future. To the kiddos going to the school, let me give you and advice. Whenever you get the chance to do something, do it. Do not procrastinate! Do not belittle things. Always do your best so in the end you would never regret your actions. Balance your academics, extracurricular, and community services. Whatever you do, face your consequences head on and never complain."
