I was a student at Potomac for my Freshman year and I will start of with how much I hated it there. The teachers and the staff were amazing, however the students were as sharp as school provided safety scissors (Which I'm not sure is allowed in Potomac, or compasses with medal points or any other points, so you could only use paper compasses). They were very disrespectful towards teachers, towards students, and immature. They behaved like Middle School kids who never grew up. I would not recommend the school, despite how amazing the teacher were. The normal classes were very slow, and their advanced classes was an average class in Torrance USD schools. They had a great variety of courses. ROTC was a huge hit since the school is near the Quantico Base.
