    "My experience in Horace Furness High school was amazing. There are great Esol programs for international students to learn English. The teachers are just wonderful, they are very patience and helpful. Also they are amazing after school programs and the teachers assist you after school in everything you need help with. At Furness you will get the opportunity to meet a lot of different countries people and make many friends from different cultures. The thing I like in Furness is that they make learning very easy for international students who don't know English. I think Furness High School is a wonderful place for international students."

    "Well I think Furness High is a diverse. The teachers are very welcoming and nice on some occasions. I just wish they didn't play favoritism or change their attitudes quickly. The lunch lines are terrible. Most of the students can't even form a single line without having to push or cut in line. They formed a group in the small line. Lunch monitors don't do very much. Even if something was to be done about the line, I doubt the students would do anything about it. They won't know what it is. The amount of food that is available is terrible. On the first day of school, they ran out of food to serve until they realized that there were still a lot of kids (I left the line and went and sat down so I didn't eat anything.) They then began serving sandwiches. Some of the students there I believe fake their attitudes. I'm sorry to say this but they (students) are very annoying, loud, and bothersome."
