    "My experience at Overbrook was neutral, It had its good and bad times for most of my four years. What I like about is some the communities that they formed in the school like The Honor Society, Promise Corp and some students who actually wanted to make a difference in the world. I would like to see a change overall not just with the school, but the school district as well. I have seen some bad attitudes towards students from staff and the other way around. Also the way that the people run the school the system needs to change. Espeacially some unresonable suspensions with Autistic children."

    "Excellent experience, excellent learning program and structure. Very diverse environment. Academic programs were well thought out at the time of my attendance. The change would be to duplicate what Overbrook High offered at that time."

    "I have been at Overbrook High School for 4 years so I been there since 9th grade. I've seen a lot happen within those 4 years. There was teenagers coming from every part of Philadelphia in Overbrook. Overbrook had its bad times because it was a point of time where it wasn't any guidance coming from the principal or anyone. Students kind of just did what they did out on the street. Over the years I believe Overbrook became a better school and a way better enviornment for the students, teachers, and staff. In my personal opinion, I love Overbrook High school because I have learned a lot. Not only academically but also for my personal life. I learned that you can't call everyone your friend and be careful who you may call your friends. I also learned that you have to be your own person and be a leader because someone might look up to that and be a leader to other people and set that example. I love that castle on the hill."

    "Overbrook is a struggling school striving to surpass it's bad past. Currently Overbrook is full of clubs and afterschool activities. Sports teams aren't that good besides the track& field team. Also the team could use some better teachers."
