    "This school has pros and cons like any other school. There is at least one, sometimes more than one, teacher who does not know how to teach or does not know the information required to teach, does not grade fairly, or does not respect students' opinions and thoughts. However, the curriculum and environment is a challenging one and the competitiveness among students has pushed me to work harder than I would in a noncompetitive environment. The school is also the most diverse school I have ever been to which is the best part because I have met so many different people."

    "Although it has its cons, I love this school! The environment, being around other intelligent kids has challenged me and motivated me to work much harder. It makes me feel bad when I see all these over-achievers around me. There are a lot of clubs and organizations and school events, and I've made many friends and felt more comfortable expressing myself at this school compared to my previous one. I love the diversity of the student body at this school too; it makes me feel not so ostracized. I feel like I'm growing into a better person because of this high school. My only complaint is the quality of some of the teachers, and some of the administration, who are not the most organized and don't communicate with the students very well."
