Do your research before sending your child to this district. They have a long history of issues that they keep denying and trying to cover up. Many families I am friendly with have moved to this district based on its reputation only to be terribly disappointed by the sub-par academic standards and the oppressive atmosphere. There is very poor support for children with special needs and also for those who are gifted academically. While there have been a few supportive teachers during our time here, staff turnaround is extremely high, and the administration is far more concerned with maintaining their reputation than supporting their students and faculty. We are currently in the process of moving to a different district, primarily due to the extraordinarily poor state of this school and its district. Look to other nearby districts like Barrington or Libertyville for a far more inclusive, academically sound education.
When looking at the tax base of the school, it fails to meet my expectations. If you are looking at this area, your kids would be better off in Libertyville, Buffalo Grove, Highland Park, Lincolnshire or any of the other surrounding areas
I was hoping this school was going to be the sha-bang! Typical government workers with no accountability, nothing to lose unionized safety nets. And talk about passive aggressive.
After much research we moved to the area so my children could join this school, I am not disappointed. The facilities are amazing, the teaching staff are fabulous and the kids love it. it has just been awarded Blue Ribbon status - a nationally rated sign of its excellence.
