Community High School District No. 128 Reviews

D128's rigorous academics prepared me well for my college career (engineering at UIUC). My classes were challenging and competitive. I was able to take 10 AP classses and take 11 AP tests. In addition to nationally ranked academics, there were a number of interesting extracurricular opportunities. I attended Vernon Hills High School, and the small size allowed me to take a number of leadership positions which really helped my development. I also enjoyed being a part of sports teams. The staff is generally very compassionate and kind. It is obvious why d128 continues to place in the top 20 schools of the state year after year.

However, there were a lot of days and weeks where I felt overwhelmed. There were many days that I didn't feel like I was anything more than my test scores. D128 should have better mental health care because of the pressure most students are under.

Teachers are very engaged with students. Very enthusiastic. Academic subjects are challenging. Students very well behaved and have good manners. Very strong extracurricular activities. Good culture of inclusion. Very happy my daughter attends VHHS!
