    "Academy for Science and Design is a great school that prepares you for college by offering college-level classes and guidance on how to succeed in college. The teachers are very passionate and love their jobs. The facilities are quite poor due to lack of funding from the state however the school makes the most out of what they have. The environment resembles closely to a work place, meaning you can get a feel of a real office place setting. If I was to change one thing at ASD, it would be creating sports teams. As a STEM school, we lack sports in a big way. There are sports available for middle schoolers but high schools have to look to public high schools to be able to play sports."

    "The school helped me a lot going into college, but the administration has some flaws. Many AP classes that let me transfer 23 credits to my college once id graduated."

    "My time at ASD went by too fast. Though a little cliquey, the high school is small, and because you've been with the same people for so long, you are pretty close. The teachers are generally great, and honestly seem to care for your education. A big perk is that by this time, the students that are there want to be there. They are looking for a solid education also. Very enjoyable. The only problems I had were some of the teachers, who didn't know what they were doing. There are also some that just give you busywork. The school is kinda diverse, with a large Indian population, with the next largest demographic being Caucasian, but I don't mind that. There are clubs for everything, and if you can't find a club, you can make one. The food mostly consists of EasyMac, and PB&J sandwiches."

    "The Academy for Science and Design is a STEM charter school in Nashua, NH. I really like it for a couple of reasons. One is that the staff and teachers are very experienced in working with students and helping them succeed in school and helping prepare them for college. They do this by promoting a very accepting and collaborative attitude between students, and by creating a challenging academic environment for the students to challenge themselves in. The only issue I have is that our school is low on resources due to the lack of state funding as it's a charter school. If we had more money to use for renovations and more academic equipment, this school would be perfect."

    "Overall the school is an excellent place to get a quality education. The teachers want to make sure that you will be ready for college and any endeavors that you want to pursue in your future. The administration also wants to see students succeed but sometimes they are not open to students taking a heavy workload even if they have proved that they are capable of one. The homework load can be tough at times but this is to ensure that you are learning the material. If you have any questions the teachers are willing to meet with you outside of class to ensure that you understand the material. There are also lots of different clubs to join that range from educational competitions to just spending time with your friends after school. We may not have any sports but the school lets us go to our home districts to participate in their recreational activities."
