    "I don't understand how people are rating this school so low, honestly this school changed my life completely. I've always been a person that didn't necessarily fit in and in here people are just so nice no matter who you are.You will always have friends no matter if you're a nerd, jock, or whatever. People actually care and they don't judge you on anything.And about the classes , yes they do challenge you, a lot! If you're in honors/AP track then you should expect a lot of work. However if you're in standard classes is not as bad, you will still learn though (I've been in both honors and standard) No matter where you live, who you are or where you come from people will not judge. And about the fact that the school is magnet and people are saying that there are kids from other neighborhoods, all I have to say is that this kids care enough of their education that they took the time to apply for a better school. And about the drugs, I don't think you will find a school completely drug free, there will always be the stoners, just stay away from it, most people do. But overall I love Mandarin High School. Go Mustangs!"

    "It all comes down to the environment at Mandarin High School that destroys the goodness of it all, unless a student is enrolled in advanced courses and thinks less of an idealist in High School. This school in terms of programs for those who mastered core material is a great alternative than attending selective expensive private schools. However, these students must think like a realist to survive for four years without any disturbances, including but not limited to teen corruption and senseless violence. In other words, a high achieving student must know how to "work" their connections and know the language of their inferiors. This is a magnet school. At Mandarin, the "magnet" means it accepts students from different neighborhoods and those from such neighborhoods have, for the lack of proper classification, a toxic culture. It shouldn't have to be this way and the current student population still remains the culprit. There are over two thousand students at this school and the opening of Atlantic Coast didn't help much. The problem lies with the governance of Duval County Schools. About myself, I graduated in 2010 but didn't attend college until 2013 due to finances. FSU-Bound."

    "Likely the safest high school located in Jacksonville. Gated subdivisions merely 2 blocks. Most desirable public high school in Jacksonville, bar none. Communications? Teachers & faculty fantastic. Online services, both parental and student. High achieving athletics programs and extraordinary facilities. Campus design, giant open courtyard surrounded by classrooms, gymnasium, theater - lecture hall, library, and administrative/support offices. Best location in Jacksonville."

    "I am now a junior at this school and im not impressed at all. the courses are not challenging. at my old school i was a below average student and now i am almost a bit above average, the work they give in most classes i had was so easy and then i rarely had any homework. Also there are fights everywhere and drugs. they had to close of the bathrooms at the football field because people were having sex in them and doing drugs. If i had the choice to go to a private school, i would switch in a flash."

    "I am currently a Junior attending MHS, and I honestly wish I had taken up my parents on their offer to put me in a private school my freshman year. I am in the Gifted Program, but have had to drop all of my AP courses to due work overload and overall class failure to pass the AP exams. I have found that it has become worthless to get A's and B's all year in my classes, but then somehow magically be in an entire class that does not pass the exam determining whether you receive your college credit. Teachers who care about my education and well being are far and few between. Administration favors burnt out teachers who have gained tenure and ignore failing classes and the rising amounts of drop outs coming from our school. I am being shoved out of this overcrowded school with basic expectations from my teachers. I will NEVER allow my kids to attend this school."
