    "This school claims to want to help every student succeed and my child has been theough nothing but hell here. When the prior priciple was here everything was a lot better. The guidence counselors just pick and choose who they want to help. Thwy do not help kids with special accomodations at all. My daughter attends this school and dreads going to it every single day. Before South elgin my daughter was getting As and Bs. Now my daughter is on the border. She used to love school. They need to really assess their interview techniques, because the teachers do not care about their students success."

    "This school is poorly run and the Staff care more about getting their way than helping students financially or preparing them for college. Don't get me wrong, the teachers are great, the administrators are the ones who ruin it for everybody. The guidance office does not go out of their way at all to help students prepare to succeed. They are rude and pick random targets and refuse to help students get better prepared for college even with parents involved."
