    "The Farquhar building is new & beautiful, but the functionality is lacking. For example, the lockers aren't large enough to hold both a backpack AND coat. The media ctr is setup for socializing more than meeting the students' media needs. The open space creates an echo and you can't really concentrate if anyone is talking. Outdated book collection. Etc. The principal is up late to parent meetings (consistently) & brings up items already covered. His knowledge of dealing with student problems is outdated and ignorant. He uses "threats" rather than proven behavior modification tactics. The list goes on. As with any school, there are good teachers and teachers that "coast". But, there are some of the best teacher's I've ever seen there."

    "There is no racial diversity at this school at all. There are some students that are racist and discriminatory against people of other cultures, it not just the school though, it's the whole city. I myself am African-American and though I have never experienced direct racism form students I could always sense that there was some sort of dislike because of my color."

    "I did not have a good time at this school, I landed in the wrong group of friends and I always felt that I didn't belong with them."
