I love how kind the teachers and counselors are. They enjoy what they do and genuinely want to see their students succeed! I also like how many opportunities Pope has to offer. There are so many clubs and successful sports teams, and you can participate in pretty much whatever you want if you're willing to put the time and effort into it! Not to mention that the students at Pope are so kind and inclusive as well! I've met some of my closest friends at Pope, and some of the teachers have helped me get through some really hard times. Something I think could be improved on is the administration. They can be so selfish and mean that even most of the teachers don't like them. The admin at Pope can be unfair and power hungry, treating students as if they were in elementary school instead of young adults. Again, even some of the teachers have complained, saying that the admin have been cold to them as well.

It was alright. It depends who your teachers are. Some of them are very caring and kind, but others seemed like they were only there because they had to be. It has a really big student body, so the halls are always packed. Even though there are so many people, there is not much diversity. It also really helps if you have a solid group of friends. One thing I did like about the school would be that you have an hour for lunch. This means you can finish homework or hangout with your friends! The academics weren't too hard if you applied yourself. You have to stay on top of your schoolwork or else you'll get behind. Also, if you need help go during x block or AO. This is when you have a little bit of free time to work on homework or to study.
This school prioritizes academics like no other school. As a high ranking school, the teachers help the students achieve success. If you ask, the teachers are always there to help you academically and personally. While many students have high mental stress, the teachers try their best to help students succeed in life after high school. The counselors are also always readily available as well. They did take away exam exemptions which helped a lot of students out, and many students were upset about that (including me). It allowed many students to focus on other exams.
