    "I have been studied this school last 4 years. It is good for new comer students. It has more than 70 percents students are Spanish. At the beginning when I was there that time it was a good quality school. But later on its become worst school. Dr. Namnun is the principle of this school who hired lot of teachers that wasn't helpful for student. I have seen lot of students left this school. Even some teachers complain about other teacher. But there was a math teacher named by Dr. Puang Lu who was very skilled teacher. He helped lot of students. And also community wasn't that much bad."

    "I had many experiences in this school. The teachers are great and do care about you. As long as you do what they expect you to do and be respectful towards them, you could get to make strong bonds with them. The school lives up to its name as their student body is composed of people from many countries. Many subjects are well taught except for Mathematics which most of the time leads students to being unprepared for their Regents and challenging classes like Pre-Calculus. In the last two years I've been in this school, I saw students being assigned to the wrong classes as they were not prepared for them like a junior taking Government class when they haven't even taken U.S. History. Some staff members have been very rude; these people expect the student to respect them but they won't do that in exchange. Aside from that, I met a lot of people and great teachers who have inspired me to make a change. I still believe the school would do better if they were up to it."

    "World Cultures lives to its name. There's a very strong sense of diversity and acceptance. Teachers make sure students learn the cultural differences that exist and how respect is necessary to live in an inclusive society. Hispanic students are a very big number in the school, then Africans, Asians, and some people from Europe. There haven been events like "Mix it Up Day" where students who usually sit at a specific place would go to other tables and meet new people. I've had the opportunity to meet some students who were confident enough to talk about their sexual orientation. And, even though some students have different views on some people's sexual orientation, teachers would be there to open up a little more those minds."

    "Scheduling process is in between; students are assigned what they need but these schedules are very likely to change. In September and October 2015, there were too many changes and everything was messy. Some students could not even have a stable schedule and they were bound to move all the time. Adding to that, some sophomores and juniors had to deal with US History when they had not even taken Global before."
