    "My dad went to George and so you can imagine how excited he was that I went to his school. And what I can say about it is, no matter what people say about it, GW is full of teachers and faculty who love that school and make everyday worth it for the students. I was in IB and can honestly say, I loved all of my teachers and that it was easy to learn from them because of their enthusiasm and passion. Outside of my IB classes, I took weights and conditioning with Coach Finesilver. I have been involved in several sports over the years, to this day, he is the only person I refer to as coach and has inspired me in so many ways. Ms. O'Ryan made the school so beautiful, outside and in. Mr. Jennings (although recently transferred) made students excited for college. And the security guards know every students face. So yes, I loved GW."

    "George is a good school. It has a good environment that makes you want to exceed at many things. During the four years I have been here, I've made many good friends and memories that I will hold closely to my heart. I've learned many things about myself that I really didn't know myself, I got better at writing and drawing. Some of the bad things here maybe that there were some issues with the principals and a few teachers but other than that its a good school. If I had a chance to go back to my eight grade year when we were choosing which high school we were going to go to...I'd choose George again in a heartbeat."

    "My experience at George Washington was interesting. There are a variety of cultures and people at George which somewhat prepares you for the diverse population of America and the world. The best thing about George is the student involvement with sports or academics and the bonds that students create while doing these activities. Some things I would like to see improve are little things, such as teacher hours, instead an hour and a half twice a week, perhaps a half hour every day. Besides the little things, there really isn't much to improve the school."

    "The students here are unique and welcoming. Most of the teachers put in effort to care for their students and overall the environment is decent. The reason why it's 4 stars is due to the people that go to this school, I couldn't be happier."
