    "Like I said before the teachers are wonderful, it's just that they get too much pressure from the principal, and she gets way too much pressure from our school board. One thing for sure that I DO NOT LIKE that my school has done is change our grading scale. They changed it so that it could "encourage us to do better" but it's very hard, and it's making my grades in my junior year look bad. PMSA doesn't make us feel like we're a real high school we already don't have things that normal high school's have like our own sports team. Since my school is the best school in the district. There are two other schools in District 209 Proviso East and Proviso West. We are the Proviso Mathematics & Science Academy and my school wants to make sure that we stay number one in the district so they suck the fun out of everything and anything at PMSA. What really do enjoy at PMSA are my peers, they made this high school worth while. I met some awesome people over these past three years so I am thankful for that at least."

    "My school is known for being diverse and in that way it's unique. People from many different backgrounds come together and share ideas to create a better environment in our school."

    "The teachers at my school are very nice and caring. If they notice that you're struggling they try their hardest to get you where you're supposed to be. It is easy to communicate with them inside, and outside of school (through email). I really do appreciate all my teachers I feel like they don't always get enough credit though."

    "Some teachers are great with teaching and being entertaining at the same time to keep student focused. They constantly all questions to make sure we are on track and not confused. They are available outside of the class and willing to cooperate to find what works best for the student."
