    "My experience having had graduated from Larkin High school this year was truly something I won't forget. The one thing I like most about Larkin is that teachers/staff/faculty want you to have a bright future. Majority of the adults at Larkin are very comprehensive, they provide a comfortable environment making you want to come to school."

    "Larkin is seen by many people as a terrifying school that is unsafe for all the students attending. However I came from a huge Christian private school, the first year I was a little overwhelmed, however, after adjusting to the surroundings Larkin isn't TERRIBLE. The teachers are so amazing, and conciderate of each of the students. They want us to succeed. The environment is not always the friendliest due to language and physicality between one another. But overall, the academics are preparing me and all the other students for college."

    "Larkin, from what I've experienced, has a wonderful selection of teachers. Each one caters to each students needs, and is so patient, in helpng each student advance. At the end of the year, I ask my teachers why they continue to teach, and generally get a response along the lines of them being passionate about others learning, and making signifcant progress. This passion ignited in these teachers is demostrated by their efforts to discover new ways to convey concepts to their students. As for the students, there are plenty of them that are involved and engaged in the school's activities, but like all people, there are some problematic areas in their characters. This is seen the way they deal with other peers they disagree with, and the actions that lead to negative consequences."

    "I like how Larkin High School is very diverse as well the clubs are great for people to be involved but the only thing that it lacks is parent involvement and safety because I feel that the school doesn't inform the teachers as well students even the parents as much of what is going on in the school"
