    "The teachers, though varying in teaching styles, strictness, etc., they all want what is best for the students, even if it means that they have to use some tough love, kick them out of the room for the sake of the rest of the class, or if they have to stay up long hours in the night to prepare/perfect a test or quiz that will not show that we can just regurgitate information back at them, but that the students actually comprehend and understand the information that is given."

    "The only thing that I wish would change about the school is the amount of teachers that left/are going to leave the school. This year, our favorite teacher, Mr. Campbell, retired, and the Spanish teacher, the 10th and 12th grade Literature teacher, the 9th and 11th grade History teacher, and the Chemistry teacher left. They were all great people who were dedicated to the educational and spiritual well-being of the students they taught. If I were to start the experience over again, I would want them to stay at least until I graduate."

    "My experience was pretty good at this school until my senior year when I was bullied the whole year every single day. It was super stressful, so by that time I was ready to graduate. But the academics are very good and prepare you for college."

    "Overall the teachers are very attentive and approachable. They appreciate when you put hard work in the classroom, your homework, quizzes and tests. They are not tolerant for disrespect when it is outright, but they don't do much if there is bullying going on that they can't quite see in the classroom."
