    "Academically I think Hinsdale Central students and teachers are cream of the crop. For the most part, all my classes have been enjoyable and challenging at the same time. Teachers actively encourage critical thinking. I can confidently say I will leave Hinsdale Central with a whole toolbox of skills that I know will help me in the future. That being said, I have never cared for the culture at this school. Freshman year I remember we did an activity where we "dispelled rumors" about our school, such as "daddy's money" and "HC preppy af." I don't think those are false statements. You could argue that I dispel those rumors, but I will say that most people I've met at this school are preppy+rich. Most of them are still nice, but I find there's a very fake culture. I'm sure many parents are looking at this school because it's ranked high. That's fine. I mean every wealthy high school is the same. I've never felt like I belong here, but I can't say I would belong at say, Stevenson, more."

    "Excellent academics, sport programs, music programs, and theatre programs. As a student near the top of my class, I can say that the academics are highly competitive, which can be overwhelming at times. The mentality of many of the students is to take as many APs as logistically possible, despite the extreme emotional and mental toll. On top of a rigorous class load, almost every student is highly involved in sports or activities. Due to the rigorous class and extra-curricular load that most students bear, there is some inevitable isolation, as much of your time outside the classroom is spent only with the people who also have the same activities. Unfortunately, for people without a "thing" this makes social life a little challenging, and it makes All that being said it is a really great place with many passionate teachers and coaches. The counselors are incredible and school spirit is great."

    "I am an immigrant from India who moved to this school in 2015. At first, it was hard for me to get around this huge school.But then I got used to all of this because everyone at this school is friendly and helpful. I love the environment at this school. This school is very competitive and students in this school go on to highly prestigious universities."
