    "City High School made me sick, literally. The staff watched me so much and I had little freedom, then they attempted a search that was so bare and unprofessional, I did not consent. City high made my issues with anxiety two times worse, ruined months of my life, and now that someone asks me where I'm going or what I'm doing, I get high levels of stress. There are few staff that were nice and caring, the rest are incredibly rude and careless. City High is by far my worst experience in a school. This is NOT an accepting school. It was so bad, every time I think about my experience in it, I get stressed out, it permanently scarred me mentally. I do not recommend putting you're kids in city high."

    "I'm a senior at City High...I came from the one of the worse school districts in Greater Pittsburgh (Wilkinsburg). So when I had decided to go to City Charter I was super nervous and thought I for sure going to be behind. It turned out that the curriculum was set in place to individually fit all the kids from different educational levels and slowly integrate into harder and more difficult work. By the following year everyone was one big family both teachers and students.The looping system had helped build a bond unlike most.I have met so many good teachers and all of them care about what you do and how you progress.Next year my younger brother will be attending City High and I wouldn't want him to go to any other school and I know he will have the best teachers possible because he will catch my loop of teachers and IEP workers. I can now say I will be a proud alumni of City Charter High School next year."

    "People say oh this school sucks blah blah because of the rules and regulations. These are put in place though to root out those who are not really here for education. The ones that can stay are those who the school focuses on because they see bright futures for them. Trust me the school wants to see a bright future in every student so if one is doing bad the teachers start to focus on them. This is good because it allows the students that are already good and can do things go at their own pace. The school is good because the teachers never spoon feed you which is the best. Also everyone is a huge family and come 10th grade year you can joke with almost everyone. We are forced to mingle which give us the soft skills needed in the work place. Also the new senior program has finally been worked out and for sports the robotics team is the best. We all love each other and if you go to competition wow we are the loudest and proudest. Then there is extracurricular activities like the musical chorus art club and such as well Overall i am a huge fan of this school and everything they do and cant wait to be an alumni in 2 trimesters."

    "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!"
