    "This school has its pros and cons. It has students from more than 14 different countries, including Nigeria, China, Mexico, Honduras, Korea, the United States and Canada, so students are exposed to many different cultures. The amount of diversity in the student body and different ways of life is something that is entirely unique to it. Students are encouraged to participate in multiple activities throughout the year, unlike many other schools. School activities that are offered included football, basketball, soccer, tennis, golf, swim, volleyball, cross country, track and field, cheerleading, art, photography, National Honors Society, International Student Organization, Junior State of America, and the JROTC program. There is always something to do. The best thing about the school is the student body itself. Everyone knows each other well, and it feels like a huge family. On to the cons... To start, there are so many pointless rules. Sometimes it seems like people get in trouble for doing absolutely nothing. Punishments are extremely harsh, and not everyone is treated the same way. Also, some activities are mandatory to participate in. One particularly awful event are LEAD days. They consist of all students and faculty coming to school on a Saturday and doing something or other. Who wants to go to school early Saturday morning? Along with that, students have to endure chapel twice a week and take religion class. And last but not least, the teachers. Some are amazing and make class bearable, but most of them aren't..."

    "As a high school senior, I am just ready to graduate. Throughout the years I've had some good memories with my friends and during sports. If I had to choose if I would go to this school again, I would choose no. As a said before, I am just ready to graduate already. I am ready to receive freedom; and quite frankly, there are just too many rules at San Marcos Academy that restrain students from doing the simplest of things."

    "It was a religious military school and forced students to learn the teachings of the Bible, go to services, and follow Christian teachings (even though I was a Muslim). There was little space for creativity or free thought and homosexuality was seen as a disease--they disparaged ever helping anyone within the LGBT community and almost condoned bullying LGBT teens. During an anti-bullying assembly, the presenters showed a short film about a gay teen couple and what they went through and the students started booing and screaming. The administrators ran backstage and cut the film, then shooed the presenters off (they clearly had not screened the film). They then went on stage and told the students that these people are sick and that the LGBT community is disgusting, etc. If I weren't forced to go to the school, I would never have remotely thought of enrolling."

    "I prepared myself most of the time by self-instruction and education. The classes were not challenging, even the college and AP ones (most students failed AP exams). I tried to educate students on political affairs and world events by creating clubs and promoting such education through student council, but was regularly thwarted by the admin for my "liberal bias." I settled on creating JSA to promote nonpartisan debate, even though I had originally wanted to create a political trifecta of high school Dems, Republicans, and an independent political club."

    "It's a mixed bag: some teachers cared about students and put in thought into the lesson plan while others just played movies everyday and gave out grades somewhat based on likability. In an Econ class, we watched the different versions and films of Wall Street."
