    "Simply put, authority in this school is prime focus, classes are uninspired you have 5 minutes to navigate through 150 meters of school ground with 3000 students rushing in the opposite direction you are. Most times, needing to make a stop at your locker to pick up your textbook. Not Because you need it to learn, but because you receive a detention for not bringing it. A second late to class, detention. No exceptions. It is impossible to have a stress free day in this mess. Go to John I. Having gone a year to both schools, John I. by far exceeded expectations. Each and every student is cared for, and not treated rudely the way they would be in pbc. John I. Made me feel like I was important, cared for. They have even referred me to the school therapist to speak one on one. Many of the AP's at John I. Made full effort to help me, while pbc makes me feel as if I am constantly and only ever being watched for mistakes. Don't do this to yourself. Leave it for students who are perfect, because they are the only ones left alone."

    "Absolutely ridiculously rude. Teachers and office staff. I am not the biological mother, I am the step mother. My husband works where he can not have his phone. I called to make an appointment for my husband to come in a talk to teacher, the lady who answered phone said in a rude tone when I told her who I was "I cant talk to you, I need to talk to the father" I told her that the father had called there at 8am this morning and left a message, no one has returned call. 3 times in last 2 weeks the bus has arrived over an hour late in the afternoon and we have missed out on prepaid classes. You send the teacher asking a couple of questions, so that when we questioned him about the F on a homework assignment we would already know whether it was 1) he didn't bother completing assignment 2)he didn't bother handing in at all or 3) he just had the wrong answers. We question this so we know if its a problem with him not doing work, or if he needs a tudor. He gets punished for not doing his end, but if its honestly something he doesn't grasp, the we would like to get him help. However teachers don't bother answering all the questions, which is not helping us help him."

    "My daughter is a Senior here. She loves this school. She has been going here since she was a Freshman. She is also very involved. If you want to make friends & get involved there is a club for everyone. The teachers care (for the most part) School is what you put into it. Any issue I've needed to address has been handled sufficiently & effectlvely. Very happy!"

    "I have been very pleased with PBC, my child went to another school in the county prior to and the focus was on many other things in that school but academics was not one of them. The kids ran the school, here the kids have teachers who actually try to teach and prepare them for the next phase. (FYI for those that complain about the school being expensive its the same everywhere)"
