During my time at Adlai E. Stevenson High School, I felt like the school accepted students from all walks of life. With over 4000 students attending, even the most unusual student can find friends who hold similar values. Stevenson dismisses school on holidays, such as Casimir Pulaski and Yom Kippur, that reflect the diversity of the student body. Academically, Stevenson is strong, offering over 200 courses and over 20 AP classes. However, Stevenson recognizes that not every student can take 10 or more AP classes during their high school career. Students are encouraged to meet with their counselor privately to discuss an appropriate course load. And with over 100 extracurricular clubs to choose from (Interests range from Anime to Superheroes to Helping Soldiers), students are guaranteed to find their place during their four years of high school.
Review Adlai E. Stevenson High School
Coming from a graduating eighth grade class of 58 students, the culture shock was definitely humbling when arriving at Stevenson with its student body of 4000 students. My peers broadened my horizons everyday not only through their diverse cultures and backgrounds but also in the way they encountered and dealt with problems. While my classes were definitely a step-up from my middle school rigor, Stevenson's teachers were not only dedicated to their subject but passionate for helping their students as well. I am grateful for the environment that I found in Stevenson, which allowed me to pursue the unexplored and the unchartered within the context of the familiar.
Yes, it is a top public high school with 5,000+ kids. However, the pressure is very unhealthy. The pressure to perform is exceedingly parisitic. The average student takes 10 AP classes. The average student has a 33+ act. It is very very hard to shine in the school compared to "normal" high schools. Pressure is extremely unhealthy for health. Although teachers, academics, extracurriculars are top notch, the combination of everything makes it a very depressing, burnout school. I would have gone to a Ivy League college if I wasn't an average high school kid and was a top notch other high school kid.
