First I really love the O'Bryant! Its an exam school and considered one of the top schools in the country (gold star rated by US News). The teachers really want to see the students succeed. Teachers like Ms. Lakshmi and Mr. Hines challenge students academically and teach classes on a college level. However, there are things that I wish the OB had like better technology (Tv's/laptops/science & lab equipment/ student computer labs), interactive blackboards, better text books, building facilities need major upgrades, fresher lunches with more choices, SAT/ACT prep classes like Testive, more diverse course like African American studies.

Overall I feel like my school was a great place to be even though like anything in life you cant please everyone and someone will complain about it. I think OB has a wide range of AP classes that are offered to high schoolers and even summer programs to get ahead such as the bridge to calculus. I feel like the O'bryant school prides themselves on being a college preparatory/ Testing school. I liked the fact that the school had lots of people from all over the place and majority of the people looked like me, I think OB has a lot of connections throughout Boston that helped me make it through my high school career and come out strong, there's someone to help you with any and everything you could need as long as you are willing to reach out and ask for it from counselors to extra help with school work, to at home life issues.
I have been at the John D O'Bryant since the 7th grade, which is 6 years. Personally, I think students can easily make connections and relationships with the staff and their peers. I like the activities and the programs that are instilled to help up. Although, I think that some of the rules need to be changed. This stems from dress code to basic classroom rules. The administration should work on ensuring that all students are satisfied with their time at school. I think that is not stressed enough. I think that sometimes we aren't able to provide our feedback in a way that directly helps us.
