    "Over the past 4 year my exeperience at Larkin has been a series of ups when it comes to our events. Our school has much pride when it comes to assemblies, games, and clubs or plays. What makes this school unique is the spirit from not only the students but from the teachers as well. Many people enjoy being involved especially when it comes to fundraisers, our school holds annual fundraisers to help families in the school or in our city in need. We raise above our goals and still keep striving to help in whatever way we can. Though larking is known for having the best performing arts academy within the u-46 district , it performs best when students and teachers help others together. If i could do it all over i would choose larkin again because it's not only where my friends and people i know are but it is where i have learned many lessons from good and bad."

    "Overall with my experience at Larkin High School the teachers that I have had are very consistent with their students work and assignments. They do try their best to communicate with us to make sure that we get the idea of what has to be done. They as well do their best to work around their own schedules to arrive early or stay late after school so that we may get things finished. Though some may lack in consistantly putting the grades into the gradebook, they still return our assignments on time and or explain how we could improve in our explanations."

    "Most of the teachers care and are willing to help students that are struggling. They take their own time to help them out and stay after school. Also they have a great skill on communicating with student, they ask and make sure the students are feeling well. On teaching style, every teacher has their way to teach which shouldn't be judged."

    "The curriculum is good but the problem is sometimes the teachers aren't well prepared and it gets frustrating when they "wing" through lessons, then when we actually do get things done in class, the amount of workload for outside of school is exaggerated and the dead lines are much too short, even if they are for AP classes"
