    "Most teachers that I encountered at Niles West put in extra work and effort to make sure their students were understanding the lesson being taught. Another great quality of the teachers is the extra help and time they offered outside of the class and school hours."

    "Growing up with a competitive attitude and desire for self-improvement, Niles West High School was able to quench my thirst for knowledge. As a Freshman I knew that if I wanted to excel in this school, I had to push myself. Thankfully, Niles West offered a variety of Honors and AP classes in which I was able to challenge myself. Though sometimes I did indeed struggle, I was able to seek help my instructors or from the brilliant classmates around me. Throughout the four years, I packed my schedule with difficult classes with the help of my counselor. I sacrificed a lunch period and a study hall period to have as much learning time as possible (my teachers were kind enough to let me eat during class). My senior year I ended up taking five AP classes and three honors classes. It was by far the most challenging year of them all due to the difficult content taught and workload; however, I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of it thanks to the motivation and help I received from my teachers."

    "My experience at Niles West was amazing. Being of a different faith background and it being physically shown to everyone through my head scarf, I thought it would be tough to go about the things I enjoy doing. However, Niles West was accepting and so were he sports teams. I am a year round athlete, cross country in the fall and indoor and outdoor track in the winter and spring. I would compete on the varsity level wearing a headscarf and everypne would be supporting me at the finish line. Never did I few singled out or looked down upon at a lower level because of my faith. I feel like that in itself is one of the greatest things I hs encountered at Niles West."

    "My experience at both elementary school and high school have been amazing. I have learned so much and have studied very hard. Getting good grades has always been very important to me. I have make many friends through extra curricular activities and have played a consistent role in getting students engaged in activities. I have played sports throughout my school years and learned so much about working together and how important physical fitness. My parents have been amazing at helping me to thrive and be involved. I made the most of everyday. I look forward to college and pursuing a career in journalism. Thanks to my amazing teacher, Miss Lauer!"
