    "It's sort of hit or miss when it comes to teachers, even with the AP ones. Some of the educators are fantastic while others tend to be a bit weaker knowledge wise or even disregard their students entirely."

    "The quality of the teachers is outstanding; some teaching styles aren't very engaging, like constantly lecturing and giving students barely any time to process the information. Their knowledge is to their best ability, and I would say this is the greatest trait about the teachers. Their interest in students are average; while most look out for the students and care about them, some are susceptible to judgement and unfair treatment, like favoring the honors students over the non honors. Overall, their communication skills are proficient; some teachers expect us to know the material right of the bat which isn't ideal. Some teachers go on tangents and ramble on about unimportant information. Consistency in grading is exceptional."

    "Teachers at Villa Park High School are amazing, I can say this because freshman year i had a couple of amazing teachers which i still keep in touch with on a daily basis, which is amazing. Teachers at my school don't just go and teach because they have to, they do it because they love to. My chemistry teachers husband recently died, she loves teaching so much that the next week she came back to teach us. To me that is just so great."

    "If I could do it again, I wouldn't go here. Despite it having a good academic system, it really isn't unique, and therefore doesn't stand out to any colleges, leaving it up to what students do outside of the classroom. Everyone is given the same path to succeed, there's no diversity or options. Don't even get me started on the athletic system..."

    "I absolutely love the culture of villa park high school. It is a school that is sympathetic towards its students and also provides fun activities to get students involved in the school socially. Spartan Link, a group that transitions the incoming freshman from middle school to highschool, is one of my favorite organizations that I'm very thankful to be a part of. They get to mentor the freshman and make their first year in highschool a fun and memorable one, which I think is an important integral part of the highschool experience. Most schools don't have a leadership group like the one at villa park, which I think makes the school unique. The school spirit villa park has is immense; football and basketball rallies are intense and crowds of students join to support our teams. Being involved in extra-curricular activities makes life at villa park enjoyable as well as rewarding. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because the culture of the school is breathtaking and they allow students to excel academically as well as socially. The faculty is helpful to the students and aid their highschool experience. The only opposition I would have going back to villa park would be how the counsellors don't give you tips on how to prepare for college unless you ask. I wish the counsellors would be more involved with the students, but overall it's a well-rounded school that genuinely cares for its students."
