    It's been a great experience in Putnam Science Academy till now. I'm Grade 11 this fall. I've spent one year in PSA and I love the school very much. The teacher and staff are really nice people. I like how those courses are set-up and all the teachers are very knowledgeable. Not to mention we won the championship of National Prep Basketball! Go Mustangs!

    I am currently a sophomore at PSA and I couldn’t have asked for a better high school experience. Living away from home was something I thought would be very challenging for me but the staff and students have acted like a second family to me. Academically, this school is unlike any other high school with small class sizes and a challenging curriculum.
    I like how we have access to computers and other technology to get our school work done and to fill out our college applications. The food is average, the diner could be better. The athletics at the school are very good, it gets a lot of kids into college.
