    "I'm a junior here and I love my school. However, when I was a freshman, it felt more like a family. The new administration that came last year are kind of hostile and deal with us like we're all criminals. That ruins everyone's attitude and the school's environment became hostile. However, it's a great school and every student is very intelligent. I love that the school offers IB and AP(although there aren't many AP classes) because I got accepted into IB, but I chose the AP and Honors class road. Basically, it's a good school, but sometimes tempers and attitudes alike flare. that's with every high school, though. I just can't wait to graduate next school year."

    "Teaching staff is responsive and helpful. I find the new administration (principal and vice principal) to be needlessly strict and even hostile to the students. They are most definitely not go-to people for the students, leaving various teachers to fill that void. I think it would be great if they expanded the IB program so that kids were not "stuck" with the same class of kids for every class, every day, for two years. One of the advantages of high school is one moves away from this model so it is too bad that students who choose IB do not have the flexibility of other high school students with regards to diversity in their classes."

    "I am a freshman and can honestly say that I love this school. It is a good/challenging learning environment and the staff members are all nice. There are lots of clubs and after school activities where other students can participate in and lots of cultural assemblies too. Personally I am in the Asian Club and I participated in the Asian Assembly, which was fun. There aren't a lot of bad things that go on, like suspensions and there are no fights."

    "As a senior graduating from Bodine, I can now reflect upon my experiences there. I was part of the group of students who took the International Baccalaureate program for two years and I must say that it was the highlight of my experiences in Bodine. Its courses are very rigorous and full of assignments. It really does prepare you well for college and it teaches you how to become an adult. Although this school is not as popular as most great schools, it is nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon high school which makes it one of only two high schools in the Philadelphia region to have received this honor. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is interested in learning about worldly issues. This school has connections with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and it has numerous assemblies about foreign countries. The principal is very strict and does not tolerate any kind of violence or harmful activity. This is a magnet school, so students are expected to be at the top of their game every single day. This includes attendance, tardiness, and academics. I love Bodine high school."
