At MS 172, this school has amazing qualities and values that helped me grow into the person I am now. The teachers value and help all students with any conflict and teaches all classes very well, to the fullest. Even though this school was all about work, we also valued clubs and activities. Overall, this school was fun and an amazing 3 years!

I truly enjoyed my time at MS172. MS172 had some teachers truly open my eyes to the world. If you are applying, i defently recommend 172. Go Grizzlies!
It was alright. I went to school here just for 8th grade. I took high school level classes like algebra and earth science and the work was a bit tedious, but in the end, it benefitted me as I did fairly well on the regents.
