    "The Teachers at City Center City Academy are very well rounded on the subject that they are teaching. And they are very approachable when students don't have an understanding of the subject."

    "The school challenges you to stay organized , and also helps you know what to expect for college. The rules are sometimes strict , but students still have some breathing room."

    "This school was an experience both negatively and positively. I had wonderful times and terrible times. I made my closest friends. The teachers are wise and understanding if you try your absolute best. The quality of the education was great for the most part."

    "The City School is defenaitly a college preparing school. They offer so much help to the students that it's amazing. The college guidance teacher is probably one of the most helpful tools that they have because before, I knew absolutely nothing about the college application process. I was completely oblivious about SATs, ACTS, transcripts, community service, everything! I am so thankful that I attended The City School in my junior year of high school. It was an answer to my prayers."

    "The school isn't all that bad. It just depends on what the student wants to do with their lives, career lives. For me, I would prefer a career focused on STEM, and this school doesn't really offer anything for that, but if the student wants to go into another career like business, English, then this school is perfect because it does build on the basics and allows students to read and write better. Some of the teachers are immature and most of the students are, but overall everyone is laid back. Also the area around here is amazing there are a lot of food options so at first it can be overwhelming, but it is good that we get to go out for lunch so that we can explore."
