    I honestly love going to this school. I have matured a lot coming here and I have learned what I want do when I am older. By coming here I have had the chance to meet important people and able to get my name to important people in my career field. I also love that there is no bullying and everyone can be who they are and have whatever sexual orientation and not be judged #Classof2015

    i think the school is and awesome way to know what pathway you want to take in life as far as your career. like me im taking health science and i think its wonderful and most of the teacher are hard but the only reason for that is to push us hard cause they know we already know some what of what we want to be. i love the school and all but they need to lightin up on the dress code we cant even wear jeans we have to dress in slacks and blouses and collier t-shirts everyday. but sometimes they do give us jean day but you have to pay for it and it has only happen twice out of this whole school year.

    I disagree with nearly every student on site Dubiski is not a superior school just because its new or has laptops in fact the opposite could be said due to the abuse of those said 'privileges' and the staff at the school are only concerned about grades not the students well being And to say that this schools students are better is ridiculous. I ve attended both schools and can tell you that all of Dubiski students are made up of one of either A people who deserve and want to be there or B people who have no business being at a school that offers what Dubiski is suppose to deliver.

    Dubiski is a great concept and it appears that the majority of students actually want to be here. It is helping me to want to teach kids in their chosen field. It is so refreshing to see them applying themselves and trying their hardest to achieve. Good job!

    Now i strongly disagree with dubiski having a better knwoledge than GP and SGP currently i am a part time student and would rather go to dubiski than GP because it has better looks and i am more of a computer note taker. Now i see the problem with GP is that they don't enforce the dress code as much as GP and SGP do. and the teacher what some people call 'the lazy teachers' are still the same thing at dubiski they just moved from GP and SGP and not almost everyone at dubiski is smart most of the students in dubiski attend that school because of it's laptops. I am a computer technician in that school from GP and i also work in the receptionist area and i see that around 95 percent of the students are using the laptops for the wrong reason

    This is an excellent high schools the school has better students than GP and SGP. Also the school has everything new. It should be only a Magnet School for Pre-AP/GT students but I think they will change it to that eventually. But the students there are still better and smarter than the students at GP and SGP

    I am currently attending this school and i am having so much fun on this the teachers are awesome well some of them they do have a couple of teachers that look like they don't want teach there but at least they try their best not to give up the dress code i like it we look professional and looking at other students like that make me wanna work and work better because i know that i am getting all the knowledge i need to succeed in live i wanna give my special thnx to all the teachers and administration there and keep up the good work )

    This school is amazing. It has the largest collection of e-books in the country. Not only that all the teachers want to be here. So chances are your get a teacher intersted in teaching rather than a pay check. The students also want to be here and the laptops make the homework efficient

    This is the best school I have ever gone to and it has been a fantastic six weeks this is really the best high school in the world. Nit only because it looks nice but because there os good education at Dubiski like of course our careers is one thing but the teacher are great I would recommend this High School to anyone.
