    "I have had some inspiring teachers, in that school. They pushed me, encouraged me harder then most students. One teacher in particular saw great potential in me and I was able to build a good friendship with this teacher. Other teachers do what they need to but I felt I had the honor of having one amazing teacher look after me as much as they did. I will be forever grateful."

    "My former high school prepared me for some important financial choices which helped impact some choices in my college years. There were courses specifically on financial problems that helped me mentally with decisions pertaining to money. School helped me feel confident going into the real world, however after graduation the "real world" perspective is not the same for any one individual. No matter how well prepared you think you are there will be obstacles it is the matter of how you take those obstacles and learn for yourself through experience. A school can teach you so much, but experience is the only way you'll learn for yourself."

    "The principal and students really trying every year to make the school a better place and improve, but its not nearly close to being a good school. The intensity of the work is low and students aren't expected to do anything very hard yet many fail. The students who do choose to do better have the option to go into AP or honors classes but even they are not the most exceptional students. There have been at least 2 pregnant students at the school every year I have been there which i think is sad. Many graduates go to CUNY or SUNY schools...some don't go anywhere...the class of 2015 is the first to really try and go further than SUNY. The school has MUCH room for improvement and they are working towards it. Success is rewarded greatly, but failure is almost expected."

    "Most teachers are young and engaging. They not only care about the students who succeed but those who don't as well. most teachers are available after school and during lunch for anyone who needs help. I have loved most of my teachers."

    "if a person needs help with something, they will be available during their lunch period. They know a lot about the subjects and they show a wide-range of interest in the students. The grading is fair because each person gets a different grade based on how they did in the class or the work that they had done."
