    "I really like this school. I'm in 8th grade and this is my first year. The reason I enjoy this school is because of the teachers and clubs. The teachers are rigorously involved in trying to provide you with the most knowledge possible. The teachers are very patient with the children. They also offer tutoring and/or extra credit. The clubs they have include Key Club, GSA, and Stitch Club etc. They embrace everyone, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation. Some of the notable teachers include Mr. Sowell, Mrs. Rowan, Mrs. Magby, and Mr. Pickens. Some warnings for newcomers of the 8th grade; Mr. Pickens yells a lot so do not test him, Ms. Rankin doesn't put in grades, and work hard in Mrs. Magby's class!"

    "I really enjoy attending this school. I have been here for 2 years and it's soooo much better than my previous school. I have made several friends and I feel very safe here. The teachers are very nice, and I know the school work is harder but they are preparing me for college!"

    "very rigorous and impossible to pass unless you have lots of time to study and the necessary dedication to pass."

    "Your child must have the ability and maturity to learn on his/her own and keep up with the fast-paced workload. I finally will be pulling them next year, going to either private or a charter school. Unfortunately it has declined over the years. There are some major issues that need resolution. It just does not have the ability to provide an education for children anymore. To be honest, I think the school is putting more effort on a fake reputation, then the education and development of the children. My children have said for a long time that when visitors come to inspect what is going on they have to act as if nothing is wrong. With the increase of violence, lack of guidance, ridiculous class sizes (70+ students in the electives, I am not exaggerating!) and a large amount of students failing this school does not get my recommendation anymore. It is sad as they really have a great program for the medical arts. Please do your research, call the school board, ask about the dropout rate or how many students request to go back to their neighborhood schools. You would be shocked. These are not students that are unintelligent, etc. Many go from 4.0 GPAs to failing."
