    "I'm in this school right now. And I really love it and I wish I could stay But I'm a military child and I have to go to another country and i have to say good bye to my friends. But the teachers there are super caring. I rember I cried during 1 through 3 period that's more than 3 hours and all the students asked me what was wrong and the teachers help me go through it. It a good school. And with the gifted class I am in it is quite fast, I really love this school. They have so many clubs and there are so many people its hard not to make friends."

    "I REMEMBER THIS SCHOOL LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY. ONE OF THE BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS I ATTENDED IN THE NORTH CHICAGO SCHOOL DISTRICT BACK IN 1992. MY PATENTS WERE IN THE MILITARY AND OUR LONGEST STAY WAS IN NORTH CHICAGO. I HSTE I HAD TO MOVE I LEFT SOME GREAT FRIENDS BEHIND THAT I BEEN HOPING TO RECONNECT WITH FROM THIS VERY SCHOOL. I REMEMBER MS. GUNN ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS. NOT REALLY SURE HOW MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE THEN IM NOW 30 YEARS OLD AND I HOLD ON TO EVERY MEMORY FROM THUS SCHOOL."

    "I went here during my eighth grade year, not a whole lot different than my experience at Woodland which I attended the previous year. I am 24 years old now, and I can still remember that awful mildew smell in the basement of Neal where I attended music class with an strange teacher who had yellow tinted eyes... "Mr. Russel". I remembered a student spitting his phlegm out on the staircase, not caring who saw. The only teachers I liked were my English teacher, my math teacher, and my main teacher Mr.Chudik. Principle at the time was very aloof, I remember she wore a wig and people disrespected her and Coach JJ. It was... The school was a sitting stereotype... A ghetto school. Terribly ghetto."

    "Military families....... Think before you move into "housing" first of all it is not military housing because anyone can live here. The schools from elementary to high school is horrible your kids will be behind in everything and the personnel are very unprofessional. This school is the most unorganized place on the planet. Just be warned when you move here there are better places to live in so please do your research!!!! --Submitted by a parent"

    "MILITARY FAMILY do not put your child in a North Chicago school, the schools are TERRIBLE! It's sad that out husband and wives have to go and fight in a war, and our children have to go to school and fight a war. My daughter went to Neal, it is one of the worst school's in the district, unfortunantly this is the school in our district if you live in Housing in Great Lakes, the children are EXTREMLY BAD, their is gang activity in the school, girls are always getting pregnant, most of the teachers forgot why they became teachers, The school smell like mildew, I am suprised that this school is open for all the things that go on there. I HAVE TO BE HONEST, Mr. Grenda the Principle is doing the best that he can, with what he have, I believe that he is not getting the support that he need to make this school a success, he cares about the children, and he dosent hide behind a desk to just receive a pay check. He first need to get rid of all the horrible teachers that are their, children need positive teachers in their lives. MILITARY FAMILY move to Gurnee, Libertyville, Forest Park,Lakeville and all other area around areas mentioned. The schools are excellent in those areas."
