I absolutely LOVED CS! I'm in my Freshman year of high school now (with only 2 weeks until the school year ends, so almost a Sophomore), but I still remember 8th grade like it was yesterday. The teachers were incredibly welcoming and I made some amazing friends there. 8th grade senior week was the absolute BEST and I had a blast. I've never really been one to enjoy going out for recess, so if you want a quiet place to sit throughout lunch and recess, you can go hang out in the art classrooms. Or if you're not like me and you love recess, the yard was a great place! Sometimes I end up walking past the school, and I've seen two teachers so far, both of whom were incredibly excited to see me and were just as welcoming as I had remembered from a year ago. I also felt adequately prepped - I got into HSMSE (a SHSAT school), and Millenium, along with 4 private schools. Overall, I love CS so much, and I would definitely choose it over and over again. Is there an option for 10 stars here?

The teachers I had at The Computer School were truly once in a lifetime type of teachers. They had special ways of getting the entire class engaged. Also, they didn't let our age stop us from learning above the curriculum. We ended up learning things that were meant to be learnt in high school, except they taught it better! Above teaching in the classroom, they cared for their students outside of it too. For an example, I wasn't always a particularly social student- just the sight of the cafeteria throng made me want to faint. Instead I would ask my ELA teacher if I could stay up during lunch and just quietly read. Throughout the year my love for reading blossomed and I became a better writer. All because she gave me the opportunity to do explore. If I could, I would go back in time just to relive my middle school experience again.
At The Computer School I encountered some f the best teachers of my life. They knew ways on how to keep even the shyest students actively engaged and their rowdiest students channeling their energy to eagerly learn. The teachers actually cared for their students, even staying up during lunch time for one on one tutoring sessions, free use of the lab equipments, or just for exploring the class library. At The Computer School, I never felt particularly stressed but instead I was comfortably challenged and really developed an "I can do this!" mentality.
