    "I was a student at the Academy of American studies until sophomore year.The school spirit is strong and also the school has so many events through the year. There are indeed some students which are trouble makers but all schools has its flaws. But mostly all of the students there are great. You can have more freedom to go around during study hall and grab a meal at the near grocery. The basketball team is great also the coach is a really nice person u will enjoy it"

    "teachers are tough graders and bullying goes around a lot especially if your black . School is interested in sports having a lot of sports teams.There are a few trouble makers in the school and gossip gets around fast since theres not as many students."

    "It's a small school where everyone knows each other . Most of the teacher are really great such as Ms Jaffe, she's not a teacher only. The way she teaches you is just inspiring, she teaches about the meaning of life, the world, people. Mrs Greenspam she makes boring biology as interesting as a fiction book. Ms Toro, she is not only a teacher but she is your friend.It's really a great school."

    "If I could give a 0 star rating, I would. This school has very unprofessional staff, almost no choices in elective classes, poor facilities, and is extremely overcrowded. They brag a good reputation for American history while neglecting science and math classes with very poor staff in those areas, no science labs, even some humanities teachers are not good. If you have an issue with a teacher mistreating you here- good luck. Because there is nobody to complain to either. Staff acts like this school is all that when it is not, going here robs a student of a high school experience and does NOT prepare them for college. Facilities are a nightmare and a fire hazard, classes are held in extremely cramped classrooms and during passing, hallways are a nightmare. This school brags maybe three teachers who actually know what they are doing and are qualified while the rest are rude, unprofessional, and inexperienced. There is a lot of favoritism that occurs in this school from multiple staff members amongst other unfair things. DO NOT go here, you will regret it! This school gets away with countless violations somehow, and it is at the expense of students. I am glad to have graduated."
