    "Most of the teachers are very nice to students. However, I feel that if you are a "new" student halfway through the year you don't get to create a relationship with the teacher like the rest of the class would have. Also, some teachers make their favorites extremely obvious and totally ignore other students."

    "My teachers at Highlands were very supportive and knowledgeable about the topic they taught. I owe it to a few of my AP teachers in high school for how well I am doing in college now. My professors at Clarion are very good, even though I prefer some over others, but I still think they are doing a good job in teaching, communication, and being supportive to their students."

    "Both my high school and my college, from what I have seen and learned, are both very similar. There is acceptance for all types of people whether it be race, sexual orientation, or where you live. I think there is somewhat peer pressure no matter what or where you are in life but I do not see it pushed or have seen it at all."

    "When I graduated from Highlands High School, I was excited to move on to the next chapter of my life. I loved the science classes I took in high school and knew I wanted to continue my education in that field. My high school teachers and family prepared me for what was at stake with living on my own at campus and the courses I would be taking. I am a freshman at Clarion University of Pennsylvania and doing very well in my classes. It is so exciting to be at this level and to enjoy what I am doing in school. I attend many study groups, meet with my professors, and even tutor some of my closer friends. I can not wait to move on after graduation and make a difference in this world and the world of science."

    "I wasn't sure how to do a lot of things after high school. They held Living today class in freshman year when students wouldn't require the necessary skills that it taught and many didn't remember them. I'm not sure how prepared I am for college as the curriculum was pretty easy going compared to the amount of homework in college and they always had the same universities come to give presentations even when students showed little interest in them."
