    "My favorite experience here is meeting great people but I'm just not a fan of the school enviornment"

    "My overall experience at this school so far would be moderately good. I've made many new friends and connected with various cultures/backgrounds as well as share my culture with others too. When I first came, I disliked the school due to its academic and physical environment, some students and some teachers. However, over the past four years, there has been a significant change for the better as the environment has improved, students are doing much better in classes and activites and teachers are working harder to help out the students and school. I believe that my class was the class that helped make this change and transform our school into a more positive and academically-driven school. I would want to attend this school again IF (and only IF) the current teachers in my school were the teachers I would have for all four years of my high school experience because they were the ones who truly helped change our school (with the help of our class). If my school was the same as it was when I first came, I would most definitely go to a different school because the environment was poor and I could do much better at a different and larger school."

    "The teachers are okay but not the best"

    "Over the past four years, I've had almost every teacher within the school teach me at some point. The majority of the teachers are dedicated to teaching the course material and helping students pass their class and Regents exams. There are a handful of teachers who go beyond the norm and do after school tutoring, assist students during their free time/lunch periods and provide many resources to support the students in studying for tests, homework, classwork and exams. These teachers also have stricter grading policies as they expect students to put forth their best effort with all the help that the teachers are giving. There is leniency, but these teachers have really helped me over the years with their constant help and strict grading that pushed me beyond my limits. At the same time, there are a few teachers who I didn't favor as much. The main reason is because they don't have good teaching styles nor seem to have a consistency in grading and good communication skills. They don't have a standard course outline that they follow and change assignments around at random moments. There has been improvement in those teachers recently, however, they still can't be compared to the teachers who work hard in helping students learn, have good teaching styles and more."

    "Most teachers here don't really care about students. They aren't very active in helping, you really have to get their attention and hound them down before they lend a hand. However, I'm lucky enough to have some teachers who care enough to help us all the way through. However, I've really noticed a trend; most teachers like to leave the school, without any regard to students who need help most days. Another point to note: Most of our teachers have hard-to-follow teaching methods. A good example would be my history teacher, he would go to a new topic everyday, not even bothering to give a recap on what we're trying to learn. I found textbooks to be more reliable than teachers in multiple cases."
