I really don't know where to begin. First of all, for a teacher to tell my wife and I, that our child only needs "survival skills" to get along in life, is totally an unacceptable attitude for a teacher. The principal of the school, agreeing with this teacher, telling us he backs up his teachers! The teachers do not care what happens to the students, just as long as they get that pay raise! I think it rates just about as bad as Springfield public schools, if not worse!

The school has a lot of Advanced Placement classes for advanced students who are looking to continue their education in college. The teachers and staff seem to be more worried about being the students’ friends instead of instilling school and classroom rules. Bullying is a big problem at this school and there has been multiple suicides in the community due to bullying. The school is and has always been very clichés. The Football program led by Coach Bates is top notch, but a lot of the money allocated for sports goes to the football program before other sports. They do offer Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Golf, and Girls Soccer as well as cheerleading. The School district also tries their best to stay towards the top as far as technology and current curriculum goes, but as many schools in Illinois they can only do so much since the state is behind on all their education payments.
I love my high school. We have all the resources available in bigger schools, but we are a smaller town outside of the capitol city of Springfield, IL, so our class size is only 90 students. I have made life-long friends. The teachers know us well, and the whole community seems interested in our welfare.
The one thing I would change is the fact that there is no soccer team for the boys in high school. I would have loved to have had the opportunity to play soccer for Auburn High School.
