    "High School was hard. Very, very hard. If you are not ready to work your butt off for more than 3 years, do not consider attending Polytechnic. It's hard to be happy at Poly if you aren't doing your work and staying on top of your classes. If I worked less hard and weren't at the top of my class, my experience would've been much different. If I weren't very smart, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed my time at Poly due to its extremely competitive, college-focused nature. But all people are different, so I cannot say that people who aren't all-star Poly scholars are having a bad time, but I CAN say that if I were doing poorly, or even doing "just fine," I wouldn't have been happy. You are surrounded by some of the smartest kids in the country, and for me, not being one of them would be demotivating. Note: It's extremely difficult to move up and down the "academic hierarchy". Kids who establish themselves as smart in the beginning, stay at the top."

    "Poly is truly an academic utopia. The teachers treat their students like people, not just kids, and the array and quality of curricula offered is outstanding. The campus is small but beautiful, and while attending can be intense, especially as a high schooler, the community is generally supportive and positive, and the faculty is committed to making sure students develop as people, not just college applicants. I love my school."

    "Poly was highly reviewed and recommended to my family. However, Poly is little more than an high academic fa ade. Every aspect of the relationships and culture within Poly are fake and upsetting. There is little to no positive vibe, and kids can't seem to focus on more than grades. There are extremely disrespectful kids and the teachers are very dull and sad. I wouldn't recommend this school."

    "Poly is a highly academic school that offers a rigorous curriculum in the high school. It fosters academic competition among its student body, culminating with a very proficient and successful college admissions division. It has a very solid performing arts program but a lesser sports program. Poly is a very liberal school with a very liberally-minded faculty. It is an excellent school -- but for the right kind of student."

    "I came to Poly in 6th grade, and it is definitely a place that has changed me a lot. I really enjoy being at this school, and I have made friends that will last a lifetime. There is definitely a lot of pressure at this school, and the atmosphere is VERY competitive. The workload is a lot, but if you can manage to balance out your work with sports and your social life, you will find that Poly really has so much to offer. The majority of the teachers are amazing, although I have to admit that there are a notable few teachers who don't take teaching very seriously. There is also a slight lack of diversity, as the majority of people come from white Pasadena families. That being said, I have never felt discriminated against because of my race, and Poly has an overall very welcoming community. I really love this place, and it honestly is a great school."
