    "My teachers this year have all been very helpful and considerate during class. I have felt relaxed, yet intrigued by the lessons all year. My AP Biology teacher is very down to earth and knowledgeable about the subject, considering his PhD in Biology. He tries the best he can to teach us the material for such a difficult subject. My AP Government teacher is also one of my all time favorite teachers. She teaches the subject very well and relates the material to current events, tying historical politics with current politics. Her communication is always open and relaxed, which transfers to her students as well. My AP Psychology teacher last year always welcomed us with a smile and took the time to get to know all of us. His teaching method also helped me prepare for the AP Psychology exam and I received a 4. His testing style reflected the AP exam and I am so grateful for him. This review would not be complete without an evaluation of my outstanding medical teacher. Both of the medical teachers in my school are registered nurses, which is what I want to be when I graduate college. The medical academy has taught me so many interesting things about the human anatomy and an even more in-depth look at the heart and its rhythms. It has made me even more excited to begin my career in the medical field. I am beyond blessed for the opportunity to learn from these driven and caring teachers. I could go on and on about them and how they have affected me, but I think this could get pretty dull. I will conclude this review with a quote from my AP Statistics teacher. "Working with you guys is like winning the lottery. You are all geniuses. Thank YOU.""

    "I would not trade my high school experiences for anything else in this world. The beginning of junior year, I was faced with a choice. I could either stay at my traditional high school or transfer to the Collegiate High School and work toward my AA Degree. I did not have a car back then and transportation was my only issue that kept me from transferring. I am thankful that I stayed, however, because I would have missed out of so many experiences. I could not have participated in field day, played powder puff football, gone to prom, graduated with my friends, or met my current best friend.Yes, you can transfer locations, but you can never transfer memories associated with those locations. My high school has its own traditions, which I would be disappointed to have missed. I am proud that I am graduating with my fellow George Jenkins Eagles."

    "Over the year that I spent at this school, I had about eight or nine teachers of which on maybe two or three actually cared about the well being of their students. The average teacher at this school does not disseminate information well to the student and doesn't connect it to the everyday life of the students. Also, the guidance counselors are not efficient and are not helpful to the students. The overall standard for students to graduate is the bare minimum for college requirements. I would not recommend sending any child or student here."

    "I like the school, there is a few rules I find unnecessary but the overall experience at this school has been good."
