Amazing, always caters to the students' future goals and ambitions. Classes for absolutely every interest and an awesomely decorated and qualified staff. I transferred here my Freshman year and it was the best decision my family and I have made. Although large in size and numbers, it's easy to fit in and find your tempo in this college-sized campus. Also, the coffee shops and cafeteria food adds this ambiance of adulthood and your student will learn the concepts of being independent just in time for university. The different departments are all staffed by the best in their fields and I truly felt like I was being educated much more thoroughly than at my previous school because of the abilities of the teachers. All productions, whether musical or athletic, are astronomically funded and pleasant to attend. Clubs, bands, classes, and more give a variety of choices to every student, making it simple to find comfort among those with your same interests. Go Pats!

Adlai E. Stevenson High School is a dream! Whether I am volunteering at a school sponsored event or receiving an honors reward, I am challenged at this school. There is an excellent support system at Stevenson. As an incoming freshman I felt initially bombarded by the sheer size of the school and all of the opportunities it has to offer, however, after the first day of school I felt very accustomed to the space! This is due to the unbelievable FMP (freshman mentoring program) organization. This includes kind, responsible, and leading upperclassmen. Everyday I participate in an FMP guided advisory course. These students initially helped me understand Stevenson and figure out courses I want to take to further my future career! Now I’m in a few business classes and experimenting with dance! I feel confident and have a firm grip on my future, and am forever grateful to Stevenson for this opportunity!
I highly recommend Adlai E. Stevenson High school! This school offers many opportunities for students to succeed in their pursuit of education. Personally, I had thought that this school would overwhelm me because of the campus size, but after a few weeks it all became familiar. This high school has very qualified staff members that made it their goal for students to succeed. I strongly believe that this school prepared me for a higher education.
