Addison Trail High School Reviews

I was a student back in 2013 to 2017. It was an excellent high school had great time during my education year because they had great teachers and professors. Often times when i had a hard time during school i would go to my counselor, every student was assigned a counselor for school or personal related problems to talk to them about. The percentage of school violence related was low and we had great deans to go to if anyone was bothering us. I wouldn't say i would change anything about my high school but the lunch meals! The lunch meals where not the greatest, salads was the more "nutritious" choice i would go for. Anyhow, I wouldn't of changed anything other than the food. The teachers are great there even my sister has said so, she is going to her junior year this year and she takes honors classes and she has been doing great ever since she started in Addison Trail HS. I would pick for my child the same high school for his education just because everything meets my expectations.

Addison Trail was a very good high school in terms of academics and atmosphere. I felt that the teachers really cared about us and did their best with teaching, and they were some of the best teachers I have ever had. I never had a bad experience with a teacher at Addison Trail! The atmosphere was also always generally friendly, and it was easy to get involved. Something I would change is not pushing kids into AP classes when they don't feel ready. Schools do it to boost their stats, but it's detrimental to student growth. Also, some of the guidance counselors aren't available enough, and it would be good to change that. Overall, Addison Trail was a great high school and I really value my experiences there!
I really love Addison Trail High school. The classes are great and the staff is amazing! The teachers at Addison trail are all kind and unique, they really care about the future of their students. The staff at Addison trail give us the ability to grow as individuals, but they are also always there for us when we need them. The classes are all helpful to kids who wan to go to college. I believe the classes are all vigorous and extremely helpful.
