    "Oak Park and River Forest High School is a great high school to go to, located in one of the best towns I have ever lived in. The classes are rigorous and challenging There are many different classes offered here, from Photography to Computer Science to Clothing Construction to Adventure Ed. The teachers are all really nice and care a lot about the students' success. There are also a lot of clubs, sports, and activities that students can choose from. There are a couple minor downsides, for example, the school is very old, so there are parts of the school, like the locker rooms, that are dark and have low ceilings. Also, coming across a cockroach in the hall or the bathroom is a normal occurrence. These minor old building problems should not deter anyone from coming here however."

    "My experience has been great at OP. I think the diversity is one of kind. I have meet some very interesting people of all races, the teachers make the classes fun. my homework load is a bit much sometimes but, its high school so I get it. I have had some pretty difficult classes and I cannot remember a time where I could not ask the teacher for help. the vibe is always positive, I think all the students,teachers and staff want to see everyone do well. don't get me wrong all my days have not been great but, overall as a senior looking back. I've had a amazing high school experience."

    "I found Oak Park to be a competitive school in all departments and had a little bit of everything so that every student fits in. The campus seems very safe and friendly."

    "Many people complain about various aspects of this school but I believe their gripes are mostly because it's HIGH SCHOOL. If you push yourself and are willing to take a challenge, you can do very well in this school. OPRF offers so many opportunities to better yourself with AP classes and (usually) helpful guidance counselors. While I know that I started off well, coming from a highly ranked middle school and from a well off family, I feel that it is possible to excel. Unfortunately however, this does not always seem to happen. Our "learning gap" visibly shows the stark difference between the education received by minorities vs. white students. This is my largest complaint with the school. I believe that there has to be a remodeling of the classes in order for more minorities to join into AP and honors classes and get the education they deserve and are capable of pursuing."
