    "This school is awful. I currently attend here. If you are not on cheer or football, then you're nothing. The teachers give special attention/favor to students who are on the teams, otherwise they could not be bothered. Everyone seems to be programmed. There is no creativity what so ever."

    "The administrators here at East are paid over $250k a year plus perks. The Lincoln way high schools are so top heavy in administration salary they have stagnated the housing market in the area because their budget gouges residents and creates some of the highest real estate taxes in the nation with NO sign of slowing down. Illinois teacher are the HIGHEST paid teachers in the nation. As a taxpayer, you pay for the East teacher to continue their education. Yes, your tax dollars pay for grown, employed teachers to keep going to college. Then when they graduate with their PHDs paid for by tax payers, they turn around and demand a raise to reflect their new education status. Admin is out of touch with reality. All the entire staff care about is protecting their cushy gigs. Oh, and if you don't play football, see ya. You don't count."

    "This school is woefully overrated. A very obnoxious student body. The counselors are very ineffective. But the administration does what is needed to get a good ranking."

    "during the latest Newsweek ranking of the best high schools in America, LWE was ranked in the top 500. Very few schools from Illinois made this cut and this assessment was made based on multiple criteria. There's certainly an emphasis on student success. Communication with parents is top knotch. I'm impressed with the curriculum for "potentially gifted" students. I'd like to see a better effort towards career development and the development of comprehensive career pathways."

    "After 6 years in this system we found there to be a profound lack of leadership,poor quality of teaching and an inability to connect with and protect vulnerable students.There also seems to be a gross misunderstanding of basic disciplinary tools and technique.The atmosphere condoned by this administration harbors a perfect breeding ground for unbridled student harassment."
