    "Larking was a Wonderfull experience, very different than I thought it would be. People would say it was not a good school but my experience was good . The teachers are also good at helping students when they are struggling."

    "Larkin High School offers a welcoming atmosphere right when you walk in the doors every single morning getting personally greeted by either the assistant principal or the principal himself. Teachers at larkin truly want the best for their students assuring them that by opening after class hours for further assistance if confused. Aside of educationally motivating us royals, Larkin High School extracurriculars are well supported by not only our boosters program however our PBIS program in which we've worked ourselves up to being the only platinum level high school in district U-46 for three consecutive years. If I had to change one thing of larkin high school it would certainly be having our own football field because I believe we deserve our own territory in which we can happily support our team and all of our community can participate as well."

    "The staff is very friendly but the school just doesn't feel as good as it could be. I've been there for four years and I know my way around pretty well. Staff isn't very upfront about a lot of things and it doesn't help, especially when they should be trying to earn the students trust so that they can feel safe at school and kind of have a home away from home. Not somewhere they would be dreading going to for 5 days a week."

    "By working with the Dr. Tuin, students are able to say that they are as college ready as they could be, while having fun doing so. I*enjoyed being on the golf team for four years and the people i met through there. the rigor of academia was a perfect match as took AP and honors classes all four years at Larkin. The staff were always willing to help in the student resource center. Our custodians had always done a great job of keeping the grounds clean and tidy, including the Koi Pond used by our AP Environmental students. Larkin has taught me to use the tools offered to me in order to build a better person and better high school experience. The involvement by my entire school is so amazing and I'm very proud of the unity shown through Homecoming week and football games, as well as prom and assemblies. The parent involvement in Larkin is growing rapidly thanks to the Larkin Boosters Club."
