    "I like my school. It offers good education. But, I m not happy there. I m a sophomore at MSMHS and i m in AP and ECE classes. Along with that, I revived high honors first quarter and I expect to receive it next quarter. I m not happy at MSMHS because of the principal, Dr. Spera. He chooses favorites and makes his non-favorites feel lower than everyone. It is truly degrading because I (and many other students) are trying their best in school BECAUSE of Dr. Spera. That s not the way a high school should run. People are scared that they re gonna be Blown Up (that s Dr. Spera s meaning for making kids feel bad about them selves) and they re scared that he s going to look down on them. Honestly, I feel that way. I feel as if i m lower class and all of his favorites are the top 1%. Overall, MSMHS offeres good edu. but the culture and climate of the school is negative, and absurdly competitive."

    "This school offers many opportunities to challenge yourself and does very well preparing you for college and beyond. The staff and students are truly a family, you will be hard pressed to find a learning environment as nurturing and supportive as MSMHS."

    "Principal holds grudges and prioritizes certain students over others. Lots of injustices at the administrative level. Teachers were wonderful and supportive of my daughter's academics. She is very successful in college and was happy to get out of an (at times) toxic environment created by the principal and his followers."

    "The Marine Science Magnet High School provides there students with opportunities that couldn't be obtained elsewhere. Many of which include ECE college classes, a variety of science classes and internships. Since it is a Magnet school there is a lot of diversity within the culture and climate of the school."

    "The culture, climate, and core values at MSMHS is very strong and positive. I've learned a lot in the school either academically or morally that will stick with me forever."
