The Potter's House Reviews

The Potter's House is a very diverse setting in a tight community where people bring their own unique beliefs, backgrounds, and ideas together to make a learning environment that is enriching and valuable for all students. The diversity is very obvious to someone who might be observing, but speaking as a student it is completely normal and is what makes our interactions with friends and peers what they are, and so unique. The teachers also genuinely care about their students and take extra time to make sure they do their best and aren't overlooked or seen as numbers or heads, they love their students. The community aspect is strong, and most students will do whatever they can to reach out to each other as well as people that visit the school, and are willing to discuss topics that mean a lot to them and that they believe are important to humanity and society at the moment. Overall, I love The Potter's House!

Potter's House is like no other in that the student and staff body is very diverse. I had the wonderful opportunity to be friends and study alongside people from various different countries, ethnicities, and languages. Additionally, I enjoyed the urban, Christian environment. The school is Christ-centered, yet allows students of all faith background to attend.
Lastly, the teachers and staff at the Potter's House are so invested in each students success. the smaller student to teacher ratio allows for teachers to be as invested as they are. They will go beyond their obligation to see you thrive, if the student themselves is willing to put in the work.
Overall, the Potter's House is an excellent school and I wouldn't have wanted to have had my high school education anywhere else.
I liked a lot about the Potters house. I just think that they could change their dress code policy make it less strict and be more flexible with the dress code.
