The ratings as of May 2017 need to go up. Round Lake HS ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation and top 12 percent in the state. The village voted to renovate a huge part of the school and trust me, Round Lake has definitely gotten an upgrade both physically, but also academically. Any of these comments older than a year are outdated, Round Lake is thriving and advancing, and it's definitely noticeable.
Lack of extracurricular activities means people just clock in and out during the school day. No one stays after for enrichment and/or extra help.
I am sorry but I experienced RLHS first hand and I can assure you that "You make what you want of high school", is not an accurate description of that "awesome" institution. No, most schools do not have gangs. In fact most schools remove those type of toxic people to better the students that do care about their education. I was only subjected to this school for one year (Junior year) and I can definitely say that anyone that wants to have a good foundation for College should NOT attend RLHS. To start off I was given 4 study halls because of lack of funding for a full 8 period day. If that is not enough for you continue reading. The classes that I did have I was in Honors classes (they did not allow me to take AP classes as a Junior for some absurd reason).
I have a child who attends RLHS. I agree with the last persons review, school is what you make it. The Staff cares and is actively involved in the well being of the students. My child with his effort and help from the staff(direction every year what needs to be done to obtain his goals) has graduated a semester early. Yes the school is old and it has gangs. Alot of schools do now a days. Cant get away from it really. But if youre actively involved in your childs life then it doesnt matter how old the school is. They are even talking about adding on to this school. And school is what the student makes it.
