    "My experience in this school has mostly consisted of good memories. The courses that the school provides are challenging but yet very informative. Even if certain tests and quizzes in a class are hard, the teachers are always there to help guide the students to success by providing extra help after school on certain weekdays. One thing I absolutely am grateful for in this school is the fact that the school takes bullying very seriously. I've encountered little to no bullying experience in the total eleven years so far that I've attended this school. The school makes their students feel very safe and offers their students a welcoming learning environment. Although there are some teachers that I prefer over others, I am thankful for all of the staff members, for they have guided me to get to where I am now. My favorite experiences at this school would be the events hosted by clubs in the school, such as the Winterball and the semi-formal dance. At these dances, I love seeing all of the students at the school get to be themselves and act like one large family. I also love the clubs that I have been in throughout my high school experience, such as Student Council and Youth Against Homelessness. From these clubs, I learn about the importance of teamwork, especially when planning new school events. The Youth Against Homelessness is by far my favorite club to be in, for the people in it are very down-to-earth and we all share one common goal: helping the homeless by hosting food drives, coat drives, and walks. I believe that this school is unique in that all of the students are going on their separate paths in life and all have different aspirations and goals. The students in this school are very diverse in race, which I believe will be very beneficial in the future. By being in one of the most diverse schools in Worcester, attending students learn how to work with people who have grown up in different backgrounds, which'll benefit us in the real world."

    "Most of the teachers at this school are easy going and well-rounded people. Of course, this is all out of perspective. Some teachers I connect with a lot more than others. There are so teachers that I personally find intimidating, but others find very friendly. Altogether, the teachers are very open to suggestions from the students in ways to help improve their teaching. Most of the teachers have a good grasp in maintaining the class' behavior and keeping the students under control. The teachers are all very smart and will not come up with a random answer if they do not know something that the student asks about. The teachers here are very consistent in their grading and grades everyone fairly. The teachers all want the best for their students and will often suggest certain students to stay after with them if they are struggling with the material."

    "This school is very diverse among the student body but not so much among the staff. That could always change. Their policies and rules are strict but understandable. The classes are challenging but there are many resources available to students who require assistance and privileges will be taken away if a student is not taking their academics seriously. One policy that makes this school very unique is contacting the parents when a child's grades are slipping and putting the student on "academic probation" if necessary. A variety of clubs and sports are offered and most students attend school with siblings in the neighboring middle and elementary school buildings on the campus."

    "My senior grade teachers are the best. Anytime I need help, they are always there. Some do great power points while others use their vivid examples. Grading policies are given to us in the beginning of the year, so we know how we get graded."
