    "The school's history and track record for preparing kids for the very best universities is well documented and continues through today. Being attached to the U. Of Chicago is a great asset to the school. The rigor is quite high for academics generally and faculty are quite established / successfully over a long period. Teachers are quite open to meet with parents and often do in planned events and at request of parents. It is a grind for the kids here. It is quite a challenge for most...we see a lot of growth from our student. Campus is classic and wonderful. New facility additions are done well, and great new spaces for arts and community. Security is present, and the school is good about enforcing procedures."

    "Wonderful teachers and learning environment for academically inclined students. Class sizes small and teachers very dedicated and accessible to students and parents. Culturally diverse student body, but families very similar in values and how they raise their kids."

    "My time In the Lab School has been very bad. There are many flaws in the schools curriculum, such as huge variation in the quality of education from teacher to teacher. One example of this is Mr.Luthy, who is a teacher close to retirement age, and who, once didn't even finish a lesson in class, and hands out tests from best to worst. Another gripe I have with the school is the faculty. Sure, there are about 3 good teachers, but the rest are old, and don't seem to have the patience to teach anymore. There is also a horrible new schedule where everything is split into long 90 minute blocks, which I feel increases class time too much and lowers student participation, & grades overall. and to finish off my review, is the student council, who despite their best attempts to do anything at all to change the rules keep on getting vetoed by the faculty and staff, who just get their orders from the university."
