    "I feel like I've only learned from one or two of all of the teachers at this school. Classes that don't have to do with medicine or allied health generally do not help you learn and seem like they are only there because it is required by law. Although classes are stated to be "honors"-level, it certainly does not seem that way. Teachers have a habit of being very biased and not involved in their students' activities, so come time to ask for letters of recommendation, teachers have no way of distinguishing one student from another based on personal connections and go purely based off of a resume and transcripts. Each teacher has very different ways of grading. One mathematics teacher uses tests and quizzes for 90% of your grade; these are not separate percentages put together, but rather, tests and quizzes are the same thing and weighted the same. Other teachers may have tests only worth 45% of your grade. Teaching does not seem to be adequate for high-school-level learning and often feels like I am back in middle school. Either work given is too rigorous or no work is given at all. Lots of busy work. Teachers also expect too much of the students, which is where personal bias comes into play and lends to favoritism, resulting in some better letters of recommendation and teacher communication to one student versus another. Overall, the quality and standard of teachers hired at this school are not seemingly high enough for a school with a reputation of such high caliber. Student test scores are only high because they all have the drive to succeed and do well, working themselves without help of teachers."

    "I chose this school because I know exactly what I want to do with my future: medicine. However, the struggles and mental obstacles I have had to overcome at this school have been quite severe. Although the students are generally very nice and supportive of each other, there is an underlying competitiveness in all of us that wants to beat everyone else to get to where we want to be. Everyday, kids talks about SATs scores and AP tests and GPAs and colleges and medical programs. Everyone is extremely stressed, not even in a good way. There is a detrimental effect on the mental health of teenagers at this school, and it does not culminate a positive atmosphere for teenagers to grow up and positively discover the people that they are going to become. While stress is a normal part of life for high school students everywhere, the amount of stress that students have here is overwhelming. Personally, I feel like I have mental breakdowns from the stress more than is healthy. It's ironic, really, because all of the students come to this school in hopes of becoming physicians or go into the medical profession. This school has classes from Rutgers that have to do with healthcare in place of normal high school electives. Only some of these classes are worth any of the effort it takes to go to this school and are also only worth it if you decide to go to the schools that take the credits for these classes. I don't know if I would choose this school over again if I could. I would definitely choose a vocational school that specializes in medicine, but not this school."
