I definitely feel that it was a mistake sending my kids to this school, especially that we are surrounded by outstanding school districts just 20 miles from Crystal Lake

This school is great if your child is doing well and are on a clear college-bound track, lots of positivity and support., however, If your child runs into trouble or has issues you are on your own. If you ask for intervention do not expect any help. I have experienced both with kids in this school.

If the child has 100% attendance and never questions why, there will be no problems here. However, not all the instructors are capable of dealing with a challenging child. The PE dept is quite draconian in it's grading system as well. One of my children caught a cold because she was playing a softball game for PR on a wet cold day. She missed 2 days of school, which were excused. She received two zero's in PE because policy dictates a zero is issued for non participation regardless of reason. Those zeros dropped her from an A- to a B+ and have affected her overall GPA. Utterly ridiculous.

I am a former student of P.R.H.S. & I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best schools in the area. I graduated from P.R.H.S. in 2004 and went on to graduate from Illinois State University with a teaching degree. The academics, atmosphere, athletics, students here gave me some of the greatest experiences of my life and I will always be grateful for that.
