Overall, if you are sports geared, it's a great school. Otherwise is a fine school, but for the taxes and expectations for Park Ridge, there are many better suburban schoool, much more academic and higher ranked. Not certain this is one I would brag about or in retrospect would have selected for my children.
Maine South is known to be one of, if not, the best school in the area and state. Everyday walking through those doors I feel ready and happy. Maine South has reignited my love for learning and school has not become a place to dread but a place to love. I am in all of the higher academic courses and I can say that the AP program and Accelerated Programs are exceptional and you learn so much. I attend college next year and I feel so prepared. Maine South has excellent teachers and administrators. They genuinely care about the students and are passionate about what they do. Of course just like every school, you have the occasional dud of a teacher who lacks, but they generally never last long here. Maine South has a massive array of extra-curriculars that students can partake in. Everything ranging from chess club to football to yoga club to key club is available at Maine south. Maine South also has many different educational honor programs like NHS and it’s variations. If you live in park Ridge MS would be the best choice for your child. If you dont live in park Ridge I would say try to move into district or move to PR. The education is worth it to have your child put on a path to long lasting success.
Very good mix of challenging and interesting course work from AP classes to special ed programs. An equally impressive number of sports teams, clubs, arts programs and interests represented, there is something for everyone. So much of the high school experience is what you make it - Maine South gives every kid every opportunity to make it great. The rest is up to them. Excellent opportunities for every student.
Perfect education preparing me for a great university. Proud to be have been a Hawk.
