    "I am a sophmore at City High. This school is by far one of the best schools in the city of Pittsburgh. I always used to think negatively of going to school, and despised most of the work at previous schools. Most people would say that about anywhere you go. But when it comes to City High, I didn't dread it. It has a great academic system. The way they teach at this school is very unique. The teacher doesn't teach you, and then you do the work for what you learned. You learn by action. I have never been so excited about learning in my life! This school doesn't feel like school. Even though it's a business school and you're taught to be professional, I don't feel like I'm in a confined prison. I feel each day I go to a place where I can learn in a unique environment, without feeling intimidated or under pressure. My grades have risen higher than ever. I also want to add this school is a very safe place, compared to most city schools. I never feel that I'm being threatened by another student. It's in a great location, a nice building, awesome/hilarious teachers, 5 star academics, and more! This school is all focused on what you want to be when you're older, and it's helped me."

    "I would just like to start off by saying that if you have or are a religious student who is looking to go to City Charter High School I would rethink your priorities. In the summer of 2013 I was selected to go on a Mission trip to Malawi Africa by an out of school organization. As you may know City Charter High School runs through the summer. I applied for a sabbatical thinking that they would understand that going to another country can LITERALLY change someone s life. How could such a trip not be educational? I of course was denied the sabbatical. If I did not get any further assistance I would have missed more than 7 day s and Failed due to attendance. Something on the back of the Student Hand Book caught my eye the other day. It read. Your Future is uncharted territory, City High Provides the map. Every year City Charter High School takes a trip to Costa Rica. My trip to Malawi Africa was essentially based on the same components other than the fact that I was a Christian and there would be some Christian activities. If they really did use strategies that looked at the big picture, nothing would have stopped me from going on this trip!"

    "I am a Freshman 2012-2013 school year. I like it so far. I like all the African American students, the whole 10-year plan for your future, and the teachers and students. One thing that upsets me is there's no arts here - no choir, no high school musical, and that upsets me because I love the arts! I love singing, dancing, and acting. I took choir every single day at my old school and I love it! I also did the middle school musicals there. If they had some sort of arts here, that would make it 10x better for me!"

    "I'm a senior at City High and let me tell you that everyone is lying when they say that the school gets better. The school is not consistent with anything like the promised, and the new senior program is a wreck. While this is a good academic school, there's no sports whatsoever. Being in a building that is shared with apartments isn't the location a school should be at. While the school prepares you for real life a bit more than others, I wouldn't recommended coming here if you are not 100% focused on academics. If you like sports and having fun, please, go somewhere else. Also, you gain weight by coming to this school. About 90% of the kids I know gained 10+ pounds just in their freshmen year. It's also very stressful, and many kids have to leave due to these breakdowns. I know I for one had to take a week off due to mental breaks. Please, if you already have mental issues of any sort, DO NOT COME HERE, they will get worse."

    "If you have a great expectations on your Kid on Academic sector, this would be the best school I would recommend. It is a technology based school and the students and teachers are really engaged. It is really different than other High schools because they want you to experience things that you would face in your life after on. So it is more based on your career, and for example they want you to wear professional clothes instead of Jeans or something. Teachers are really nice and helpful even after you graduate. I think this is the best school you would find in Pittsburgh. But If your kid is interested in Sports and stuff, choosing this school would not be a good decision because, they don't even have any sports teams in there, you will have to play for your homeschool that is the only thing my kids didn't like. HOPE IT HELPS.."
