    "The teachers I've had in the past year were great but some stood out more than others. The teachers I speak of hold passion in their teaching and it's very noticeable. They make you feel comfortable in class they engage in conversation, these teachers have made me love what they taught and made me happy to come to their class everyday. These teachers have left a footprint in my heart and mind,they have instilled valuable things in me that I will carry well upon my adulthood. In short these teachers have shaped my life for the better in one way or another and forever I am grateful to them."

    "The overall qualities of the teachers and faculty here at Oak Lawn Community High School is great! They're open minded and have high expectations for the students here. Their goal everyday is to make a difference in our lives besides the fact they have to teach in a classroom. It's a very friendly environment working and collaborating with the faculty. They are not only understanding but they are very willing to go out of their way and help us any way possible, and not only for school work. They are opened ears to everyone and anyone who comes up to them. The personal bonds between the teachers and students here is amazing! All in all, they are fantastic role models."

    "Every high school is filled with the good and the bad and what you take away from it is what matters the most in the end. The staff at the school have a gift of bringing smiles to those students that need it. They are very joyful and kind to everyone they encounter and that speaks volumes for a school. I've always enjoyed my days at this school knowing no matter what corner I turned a friendly smile and a heart welcoming hello was always there for me made all the difference between a good experience and bad."

    "As a freshman, I did not attend here as a student. I enrolled at Mt. Assisi Academy, a private all girl school in Lemont about 30 minutes away from where I currently live. In comparison, I can honestly say Oak Lawn is by far my favorite out of the two. For multiple reasons, but mainly the kids and teachers. Being in a coed school is a great experience and in the end I'm walking away with great memories and a huge amount of new friends made within the past couple years. I was involved with Cheerleading and Track here at OLCHS. I was also in a few clubs and extra curricula activities and for that I have been granted with fun times and many lasting life lessons."

    "This high school was an unforgettable experience. There were plenty of things that I enjoyed, and many activities that I've done that were memorable. Although sometimes there was the occasional faculty member that wasn't the greatest, or the students that weren't the friendliest, the positive out weighs the negative. I would go to this high school again if given the chance."
