    "I was nervous at first about coming to this school. But as long as you don't get involved with the wrong people, you'll do well. I'm a Sophomore now, and so far about 35% of my teachers are great, 50% are normal, and 15% are bad. So, there's a pretty good chance of getting good teachers. Even if you have a bad teacher, you can go to other teachers or the tutoring center for help. (For example, my English 2A teacher this year is bad, so I have my former English 1A teacher to help me revise my essay.) Overall, most teachers are nice and helpful, staying at lunch and after school to help students who don't understand the material. The thing I love the most about this school are the extracurricular activities. There are a lot of choices, and the orchestra is especially great, because there are so many people! (I'm not in orchestra, but my sibling is.) This school is also nice because it has German as a language choice, and both of the German teachers are GREAT. It just bothers me that there are some scary-looking guys in my history and biology classes, because the classes aren't AP, but whatever. I am pretty satisfied being in this school."

    "My school is awesome because when you don't understand or misunderstand something you could always asks teachers to assistance you to became understanding the problems, and you will know that once you get it would be a piece of a cake of any subjects."

    "Independence is a great school. My son graduated in 2010 and is an UCSD sophomore. Most of his friends got in UC. Actually, no matter which school you attend, if you study hard dream will come true."

    "I graduated from IHS. Now I'm going to San Jose State University for Engineering (B.S.). This high school has a large campus and the second biggest campus of high school in USA. Teachers are really friendly and good security with police on campus."
