    "I love this school! The teachers and classes are awesome. Plus, there is low amount of bullying and most people have at least one friend. Also there is a great academic program for kids who achieve academically.The only thing is that the schedule is somewhat repetitive. I'm currently in seventh grade here and I have been in district 128 since 1st grade. Unfortunately, next year I have to go to Palos South Middle School. It makes me sad to think my sisters won't be able to go through the wonderful experience of District 138."

    "this school has been all right. it's a lie to say there are no cliques. some teachers are normal, and some are just so naive about the bullying and stuff. they try to keep the kids off drugs, but they do them anyway."

    "I love this school, and it's so small, everyone knows everything. There are cliques, popular, and loser. But there aren't many major conflicts. I love this school and will be sad to leave it."
