    "I am apart of Springside Chestnut Hills High school and I can say that it is an amazing school. It provides the students with a great education and it is in a nice environment and gives the feel of what college would be like. I like how we have freedom but have to follow rules at the same time. We have fun events such as blue and gold day and we celebrate holidays in school. Also, the teaching staff are the best. They will try their best to help you succeed."

    "Springside was empowering, challenging and dynamically attuned to each and every student. The work was demanding but the environment was deeply supportive: the day after my house burned down on December 17, 2001, all I could think to do was go to school; nothing else would ground me nor could anything else keep my excitement of the world kindled. I arrived to find my locker full of gifts including toiletries and countless thoughtful gestures. They had turned my locker into a beacon of love and instilled in me a root of acceptance and worth that never left me. Springside gave us a priceless education and a well-rounded experience that afforded us the ability to create and contribute to our futures in the most fulfilling ways possible. A remarkable place with remarkable teachers, they saved so many of us, inspired all of us and remain with all of us to this day."

    "SCH has been a great experience for me. I've been here since Kindergarten and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. I've formed great relationships with friends and teachers, and there are enough activities to keep everyone busy. If you take advantage of everything the school has to offer, it will be a great experience. However, if you just coast through your time here, it can seem stressful, cliquey and boring. Students here are dedicated and busy and that's the best way to be here at this school. My favorite highlights are the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership program, as it really does help prepare you for real life, and the Global Travel program, as it lets students experience the world in a unique way."

    "I honestly have had a horrible experience. SCH's sports teams are simply awful so it isn't any fun going to games. The dances at the school are terrible. All anyone ever wants to do is cheat in order to succeed. On the weekends all anyone does is drink excessively and smoke pot. I have little to no respect left for this academic institution."

    "The teachers at SCH are simply alright. There are a few that have stuck through the transition from the old schools that I genuinely respect and enjoy having as teachers, but other than that, it is quite disappointing."
