    "The teachers are pretty good, some don't try very hard to teach, and they just lecture you every single day. On the other hand, some come up with really engaging projects and discussions. It's a hit or miss."

    "The academics are pretty good. We have core curriculum requirements but they aren't the worst, especially if you're interested in engineering. We could have a few more options for classes, because most classes tend to be focused on math, science, or technology."

    "This school is ridiculously accepting. There are, of course, a few racist, mean people here and there, but for the most part, everyone is very accepting. We have multicultural and GSA clubs, for the most part we are very open-minded, and bullying happens very very rarely. We are diverse not only in ethnicity, but also in where we are from within the county. The only problem I have is with the competitiveness; everyone wants to get straight A's and get into Ivy League schools, and it can be a little disheartening when you get a 60% on a test and you hear someone complaining about their 97%."

    "My overall experience in this school has been really great, to be honest. Like with any high school, there are a few problem areas, but IMO, the pros outweigh the cons. My school is very liberal and open-minded. It is able to bring together students from all over the county, which results in a lot of different views during class discussions. There are certain teachers that don't really try to teach well, but for the most part, the teachers are unique and great. Classes are small and more project-based, and most alumni from this school say that the school has prepared them for college more than people they know from other schools. What I really like about this school is that everyone who is here wants to be here. In order to get into this school, students were required to show good grades in middle school and take an entrance exam. So everyone is here by choice. In my hometown's high school, many students do not want to be at the school. As a result, they are rude, difficult, and do not try in class. But here, the students are supposed to be the smartest in the county. They try very hard in their classes, and sometimes unfortunately are very competitive, but you never feel like your learning experience is disrupted by people who don't want to be there. In addition, the campus is ridiculously safe. There's a police academy on the campus, and in my whole time being here, I've never seen a fight, and bullying is kept to a minimum. All in all, I love this school, and although it can be ridiculously hard at times, I'm glad I'm here."

    "The whole campus is incredibly supportive to their students. Whatever difficulty you have they will accommodate like not being able to pay for your prom ticket, missing school for an international sports competition, or lack of technology available at home. While students might not like each other, there is no issue of bullying on campus because each class size is so small that we all knew it wasn't worth it to start drama and make the atmosphere awkward for yourself. The only downside would be the lack of interaction between all the schools, but honestly that's really a self effort that you should make yourself if you're eager to socialise."
