    "My daughter is an honors student and will be a senior next year. I read some of the reviews and felt the need to defend SEHS. A lot of what you get out of school is what you put into it, parents included. The teachers are doing their best with what students they are given. I have observed classrooms and the level of disrespect students show teachers is disgusting. Those children will definitely not a good experience nor will the teachers make much progress educating them. My daughter has excelled and is receiving many scholarships to college and she did it all at a U46 school!"

    "Definitely the best out of all U-46 high schools, but not as good as it is said to be. Individuals at this school are always out to get one another and its simply disgusting. Almost half of the teachers are only there for their paychecks and not the view and idea of educating students. Everyone at this school has a problem with more than one person, that's for sure. On a more positive side, SEHS provides so many extra-curricular activities and sports! Unfortunately,if you're not a very out-going person, school may seem like the worst place ever, but eventually you'll meet great people and get along well with teachers."

    "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."
