    "I liked that the teachers were very invested in the students. We were offered the best materials around to support our education. I wish swim classes actually taught me how to swim but I know it's difficult has we only had 40 minutes of class."

    "Science park is an good school but in all honesty they are beginning to slack off. My last year I went half a school year without an biology teacher and all it did was bring me down academic wise. It was cool to have two free periods but it wasn't worth missing out on everything else my other friends learned. Other then that the school is fun, creative and very open to new things. My favorite part of my four years at science was participating in Art with Ms. Brewin. Not only did she help me open up creatively but she allowed me to just think outside the box. Thank you for that."

    "Science Park isn't just another high school. It's a home to everyone. There isn't fights or bullying but friendship and learning. Great teachers that help us our, early in the mornings, late in the afternoons and even at nights through online communications."

    "Science Park High school has a student friendly environment, nearly no cases of bullying have been heard. Not only it gives me solace as a freshman, it is in one of the safest neighborhoods in Newark, NJ. There is a clash of diversity, and everyone accepts each other. The Sports teams could be better in terms of funding, but everyone shows their school spirit. The classes and teachers are amazing, although the work is heavy and hard, it pays off in the end."

    "Alright, so looking at Science at first, you would think that we're a school mainly based on Sciences (which is partly true), but theres more to that at Science Park. With various electives and AP Courses you'll find new things to interest you. There's the IB program for students ready to go above & beyond, The National Honors Society, and Student Organizations. After school, you can occupy yourself with Clubs (Possible to Change over time: Socratic Circle Club, Creative Writing Club, Anime Club, LBGT Club, Music Club, etc.) and Sports (Track, Volleyball, Basketball, baseball, and even bowling!) We have a Weight Room (Or a Fitness Center) near the Gymnasium which tends to be open at times. Now the Teachers. Most Teachers are engaging, even go out of their to make classes entertaining while also keeping a sufficent learning going on. Many Opportunities are become available such as Tutoring, SAT Prep, College Trips & etc."
