Overall a well rounded high school! The faculty is a big part of why this school is so great. They're incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they're teaching and it really shines through. The student population is very engaged and it is the norm for students to partake in multiple extracurricular activities alongside their studies. The school has so many option when it comes to getting involved whether it be through clubs, socities, or sports. There really is a niche for everyone.

The Stevenson experience was full of ups and downs, but ultimately, I was fortunate to attend such as excellent school. The school excels in every aspect whether it be academics, sports, or school events. The majority of the teachers are hard working professionals with credibility in their respective areas, although there are some teachers clearly better than others. Who you receive as a teacher does depend on the luck of the draw. Because of the giant class, there is always a community to join. Most of the students are active members of multiple communities. The culture of Stevenson is very work hard, play hard, but there isn't always a great balance. A culture of academic excellence is so prevalent that the students sometimes struggle with getting enough sleep or managing stress levels. Stevenson focuses heavily on preparing students for college and has so many resources and opportunities available. The food at Stevenson is great and the building has been remodeled gorgeously.
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.
