    "As an alumni, I can say that PBC really helped shape my life. I was a honors student and I took mostly honors classes, each challenging me to do my best. I had some amazing teachers that helped shape my life - specifically Mrs. Bretherick who taught me that if you want to do well you have to challenge yourself. Her class was not easy and I was glad for it, as it helped me not only with college, but with life beyond that. Mr. LaFevers taught me the true meaning of compassion and giving. Mr. Hall taught me that no matter how big my dream was, it was attainable as long as I was willing to work towards it. Mr. O'Hara was a great teacher always willing to help if you showed an effort. He brightened my days with his quirky personality and love for science. The office staff and teachers were always willing to help when needed. True, the time between classes could have been a bit longer since the campus is so large, but if you're not socializing you can get to class on time. The clubs and activities are extensive and fun. The cafeteria has some of the best school food I've ever eaten with tons of varieties."

    "I have two boys who have attended this school and have always been able to contact teachers and staff without an issue. I usually contact first by email leaving phone number and best times to reach me because I have limited availability during the day. They have always been accommodating. My children also thought it was a great school."

    "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."
