    "My experience at Tennyson High school has been great. This school felt like a second home because the school environment was very comfortable in which everyone knows each other and even parents are very involved in supporting the students . Everyone knows each others parents and we can all rely on one another. We have very strong and talented athletes and all very smart students. All students that are very diverse at Tennyson which gives strong pride in their own culture and is always strongly expressed in our international rallies"

    "A lot of people that come to Tennyson think that it is a sad place for low income students to get an easy diploma. They might be right about that. Our school is very low on it's academic expectations of it's students. But, what most people do not see about the school is how important it is in improving the lives of poor and undocumented students. As a student who is not undocumented, I find the school to be inspiring and deserving of better funding."

    "Better teachers who actually care about the students, and more AP classes would help to make this school much more improved."

    "Before I say anything else, I just want to say that our school gets a bad reputation for reasons with little to no evidence supporting them. We are a fairly small school, with new students arriving on a daily basis it seems. However, I see this as a major advantage because I have noticed a more personal attention given by the teaching staff and, more importantly, essentially no opportunities for your atypical high school bullies. At Tennyson, we have a fair amount of choices when it comes to AP and Honors courses, which are rigorous and college level classes. My only complaints come on the basis of school funding and the overall poor cleanliness of the campus. Other than that I don't see any reason people shouldn't give our school a shot."

    "What I really liked about Tennyson was the diversity. I met so many different people with different cultures and different beliefs all trying to get an education. I just enjoyed how really there wasn't much racism. Instead the students at the school and the staff praised diversity. You could really see how everyone was so amazed about learning the different cultures when we host our international week and all the different clubs put forth dances that represent their culture and heritage. It's just a whole new environment learning in such a diverse school."
