    "The teachers don't know how to explain their lessons. They expect you to understand what they say and if you ask to clear things out they give you attitude and get mad for asking again. If you fail a test the teachers don't care about it. They just give it to you and don't take an effort to ask what your struggling with. In the other hand there are a couple of teachers who do help. The deans and security staff are Very disrespectful assuming you are doing bad at all times. And the principal doesn't take action either. They yell at students for saying their opinions of what can help the school and say that we are "telling them how to do their job". Don't do anything about drug problems, bullying problems, and sexually active problems. There's so many things wrong with this school. They say they are a "good" school but inside the high school there is disrupt young adults who are going out in the real world and have no respect and think they are superior to others. I see no future in these kids because the high school doesn't take action in helping all of us out."

    "If you have an honors student that doesn't need any help they will do fine. Everyone else better be prepared to run into conflicts with the teachers and administration. They don't like to have to do any work to help the students. I hope the state changes the union rules because half of the teachers will probably be let go. There not there to teach but just waiting for there pension and benefits."

    "WHS has done more harm than good with my kids They were ill prepared for college, were not taught decent skills, study habits, etc. Special needs-HORRIBLE! say 1 thing, write another- if it's not in writing it didn't happen. 1 teacher in particular is ruthless and it's her way or move 'em out of her class Freshman year. Special Ed was poorly rated for implementation from a state service that came in to "help. Teach tolerance for that rather than ship them to sedol school. Not enough is done with drugs. Zero tolerance is a joke. Especially with football and cheer. They don't enforce zero tolerance with drugs or bullying. School and police work hand in hand, but not for what's best of the student usually. They just want to "look good on paper. The school NEEDS to cut out busy work, TEACH! IMPLEMENT an across the board bullying program, including assembly high school wide to address how severe it is, more drug sweeps, and improve S.E. services that are appropriate for the child and not just the ease of the school. Superintendent is Special Ed Lake County tho. . We liked the Grade School and Middle School, and the hard working staff. Parents are outsiders unless you conform."

    "Most kids go to college from this school, with a handful going into the military and trades. The school is the center of the community and it's small semi-rural/semi-suburban setting has effectively insulated it from a lot of problems seen in other area schools. There is a good demographic mix and there does not seem to be economic pressure on the kids. It is socially a great, safe place for students to learn and make friends. Most teachers are excellent - a few need to go, but this is the case in every school. They have strong athletic and arts programming, and contrary to older reviews, they a new performing arts wing. Arts programs are well funded. My only complaints are that the English writing curriculum is very weak. I've taught my son to write at home as he was earning A grades for what I considered to be C papers. The deans suspend many kids when a simple "knock it off" or detention would do. They are strong in supporting kids in special ed, but mainstreamed kids with ADHD, dyslexia or other less serious learning issues are neglected - 504s and IEPs are not implemented unless parents are on their backs 24/7 about it. They lack insight into these disorders."

    "I have two children at Wauconda Highschool - both taking honors classes, and involved with sports. The Science department has been wonderful - the labs and experiments they do, weren't available to me back in the 80s in district 214. There are ample opportunities for the students to get involved in academic groups as well as sports. The district has a sound curiculm, and state test scores continue to rise. The leadership in the highschool needs improvement - having experienced wonderful administrators at the elementry and middle schools, the High School administration should become more client focused...this isn't the "old wauconda" anymore. Parents are involved, and expect the same level of service from the administrators that they received at the lower level schools. All being said, the school / district does a great job under the current financial hardships brought on by the state."
