    "This is great school--I would be proud to send any of my children here. The majority of staff members really care about kids, and there are excellent opportunities for students on both ends of the spectrum-- those who struggle and those who excel. There are many choices in AP classes, and the school has done a lot to build these programs for our kids. The school is very safe and well-organized. Don't let the rumors and gossip fool you-- this is a good school."

    "Although the school isn't in the best area, I consider the school to be just as good as its counterparts Staggering H.S. and Sandburg H.S. The teachers are great with the kids and seem to be very motivated to teach. The schools facilities are top notch and their curriculum is very challenging for students including my son. He is currently in the Honors program and I see everyday how he is being challenged not only by his instructor s but by his peers. At first I was a little skeptical about the school but now I would recommend the school to any parents who may have doubts."

    "Although this school tends to get a bad rap because of the surrounding neighborhood I would highly recommend this school. My daughter has been attending this school for 3 years and I am pleasantly surprised. The teachers go above and beyond to help students as well as the counselors, deans, coaches, etc. They offer free after school tutoring and have so much to offer as far as sports, clubs, etc. Don't pass this school up!! I am a resident of Willow springs and was originally upset because my daughter was not in the LT school district, however now I have no regrets. She is excelling and with the free ACT prep, tutoring, etc. she is preparing for college and her future. I have nieces who attend LT and struggle with a subject only to find out that there are not many tutoring/after school help for them. Argo is a great school!! I never feel unsafe nor does my child."

    "I attended Argo, and it was an excellent school. I feel that at Argo, you get what you put into it. I have seen students go forth and pursue Ivy League educations, as I have seen students who simply could care less. This, however, is no fault of the staff because I do feel that the teachers at Argo amongst the best. They are genuine, educated, and for the most part, warm hearted. In my time at Argo, the English and Math departments were the ones who I feel left a lasting impression on me because of their own experience and intelligence. All in all, I know Argo has a notorious reputation, but you would be a fool to write it off. It is in a bad area, but it really is a good school."
