    "So far I haven't liked my experience because Potomac doesn't offer a lot of resources for students, as well as many programs for advanced students."

    "I like the some of the teachers at Potomac. For the most part most of the teachers care about their students and want to see them pass their class, graduate, and succeed. The teachers are real with you and do not sugar coat anything about the real world. However, the work is not very challenging, and the students are treated like elementary schoolers. Some teachers do not teach and despite the students letting the Principal and Administrators know, nothing happens. The students aren't motivated and disrupt the classrooms by being loud in the hallway, thus making the learning environment hard to learn in. We have limited resources, and few working computers making online work hard to do."

    "Potomac High School is definitely different from others. There's a mixture of African American culture and Hispanic culture. There isn't much diversity in races but some students are open to the new exposure. Sports are a big thing at Potomac and give Potomac it's nice reputation. Teachers are pretty dedicated to students, a few more than others. There are more students who need motivation and some who are on a decent track. Academics can be challenging, depending on the teacher. College readiness should be a main focus and strength but it isn't. There are a few programs that help students to get involved such as First Generation College Bound, Upward Bound, and Incentive Awards Program. Activities are done by the Student Government and National Honor Society which are both fairly active. Overall, the school needs a few adjustments in the academic area and college readiness area. It is a pretty fun and welcoming school."

    "My teacher were alright. Some were more dedicated than others, but overall I graduated knowing more than I expected."
