There's a lot of bad influences in the school. The teachers are good, but the students there are not. Even if you're in the SP class, the students in those classes are not actually smart or hardworking; a lot of them copy off of the actually-smart students. When I attended, a lot of the popular kids were smoking weed and juuling. Of course, I never touched those types of things but I'm saying that there are students like that. 172 also has a lot of drama and toxic people and drugs. Would not recommend.

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!
