    "Ponder High School has a good education system in a small town. Personally, I like the feeling of knowing everybody and having good relations with your teachers. The administration in a little stricter than other schools, and Ponder doesn't offer as many sports as other schools do, but that's because it's a small school. Overall as a student, Ponder isn't a bad school to get an education."

    "The dress code is stupid. The kids are rude. It's too small of a school. All they do is teach to the STAAR test. The teachers turn a blind eye when it comes to bullying."

    "As a graduate from Ponder High School, I can say that I truly believe this is an amazing school. Academics is very important and the teachers really want to see you succeed. I enjoyed the culture of the school for the most part and felt that it is one of the safest schools around. I do wish that Ponder had more clubs and ways to make students feel more prepared for college."
