    "I believe the reason why I can't say this school is great or amazing. Is because it lacks overall school spirit! I feel like the only event that people will go to our those late night football games. But we should be involved in and show up to all different type of sports, school events, and plays. Because a lot of people work hard on making a successful event for everyone but when no shows up it's a very disappointing feeling."

    "There's no functioning A/C or heating, here's asbestos in the ceiling, there's cockroaches in the basement, people smoke in the stairwells, they serve spoiled milk in the cafeteria, the classes are a joke (we only just got a computer science class this year; There aren't enough students signed up for Latin IV next year, so we'll be mixed in with the Latin III class and have to take it AGAIN; They refused to consider our request for an AP Latin class because "You kids don't know anything!"), there's racism, homophobia... the list goes on."

    "I would say, that most if not all of the teachers at this school genuinely care about their students and how effective each lesson is. The best thing is that they can turn a seminar type lesson into something everyone can contribute to and get really involved in."

    "Teachers often have a hard time controlling the class, especially if it's full of students who don't care about the class. A lot of the teachers are lazy and give the students busywork. Some teachers have completely given up trying (I've seen teachers just sit there on their phone instead of teaching, spend the class planning their wedding, not show up, leave halfway through the class to make tea for a student, and even show up half an hour late eating a sausage). But the AP teachers actually care about what they're teaching because these are college courses, and the graphic design teacher is the absolute best teacher I've ever had."

    "At my school, every teacher has a different style of teaching. Some of my teachers are amazing and inspiring, I have learned a lot. However some of my teachers are not as passionate in what they do, so I don't feel as excited to be in class."
