    "After carefully reviewing many of the local communities, we chose to move to this school district several years ago. We've been very happy with the results. The teachers are dedicated and attentive to the students and what needs to be taught. Great electives are offered both in the middle schools and high school. The community itself has a welcoming, home town atmosphere, and that carries over to the students' attitudes. Excellent programs are offered in foreign language, music, drama, art, business and engineering as well as all the honors and AP programs. Class levels are offered to address all the needs of the students, and the teachers are equally attentive to struggling students. We have experienced quite a few phenomenal teachers who really go the extra mile to make sure their students master their subjects. As a former school teacher, I expect a lot from a school district, and I have been very pleased with what we've found in Lake Zurich."

    "Teachers that can teach are few and far between. Too make up for this they assign a lot of homework."

    "Lake Zurich is a mostly privileged area with no gangs or horrible drug problems. However there are no real resources for kids with a struggling home life, mental illness, mental disability, struggling academically, or being bullied, although it has PLENTY of money to support these issues that need attention. Things are swept under the rug, for example when someone in the school or community commits suicide or even in a much less serious situation like if the football team loses, they just don't address it and pretend it didn't happen. The staff are not people you will want to come back and visit since they are often not personally invested and often judgmental, thriving off of gossip and scolding "bad seeds" instead of investigating the real cause behind a young person's actions. The teachers are average, some are wonderful, but it's the office staff and administrators that are usually not pleasant."

    "We chose this school district six years ago and have no regrets.The staff has been responsive to my questions and concerns, and truly believes in partnering with families. That said, this year the tone turned slightly more negative. Punishment and making examples of students seemed more prevalent than in prior years. However, I'm fairly confident that the leadership will not let this continue and remember to keep nuturing the education of our children their paramount concern."

    "Most teachers rarely make sure the students know the material prior to test days. The school also cares more about football than anything else. The music program was nearly cut until middle school and the band had the same uniforms for 19 years. Many electives end up not running unless the class has 20 people signed up and the most of the students are snobby and rude. Also, the interior of the building is very outdated (except for the PAC) and most of the water fountains either don't work or the water tastes like iron. I don't think that can be very sanitary"
