    "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."

    "My son started school this year and absolutely loves it. He loves getting up and ready for school now. He cant wait for the chess club to start so he can learn how to master the game. I found the principal to be very knowledgeable and friendly during the craziness of orientation. The school grounds are lovely and well kept. I love the fact that they have maintained the authenticity of the historic buildings but yet are able to provide a great environment for a school."
