On Resources & Facilities: We get free SEPTA transpasses every week so basically you get unlimited bus rides and free transportation so that's a great deal. The bus drivers are whatever but sometimes the riders are real freaks I mean I know this is Philly but some of them are extremely weird or rude like they wake up on the wrong side of the bed EVERY morning.

On Food: Lunch is $2 no matter what they serve, so even if you get one slice of a small pizza, they'll still charge you $2 for that scrap which is an absolute rip off. They usually serve the same things every week and most of the time it's not appealing. Snacks are rarely served, and the lunch period is at 10 am which is basically breakfast. Too early to fuel students for the rest of the day.

On Academics: It has the smallest selection of classes because it's extremely underfunded and poor.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: The only good thing about this school is that it is so diverse so everyone accepts each other's differences. Everyone is friends with each other, to extent, and there are no bullies because everyone knows each other.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: It has the smallest variety of clubs, all of which are extremely under funded and mostly student run. Each club has to hold bake sales and such just to keep their clubs.
