I’ve loved my experience at Richards. I feel as though my skills were always taken into consideration and without question my abilities were always fostered by a capable staff. Hands on science classes have prepared me and helped me in deciding to pursue a career in medicine. The arts have brought me to where I am as an individual and within the arts, and extra curriculars alike, I have found a second family.

I attend Shepard Highschool in Palos Heights. The school is very well rounded and friendly. MOST of the administration and/or staff is very friendly, others not so much. Teachers are great when students engage. Some teachers hesitate to help if students doesn't show they need it or do to ask. The school is somewhat safe. Classes are available that prepare students for college if they apply for them. Overall good school, but could always use improvements.
I attended Eisenhower for 4 Years and honestly it was an amazing journey. Not only have I prepared myself for the next chapter in my life by the help from other such as my teachers and counselors have been a big help. My teachers have taught me responsibility and integrity. I have learned what it takes to be successful in the world. I will continue to hard at these traits to make them even better. People have helped me since the day I walked in the door. People at Eisenhower have showed great respect and showed how much they cared. I am extremely thankful for the moments I shared at Dwight D. Eisenhower.
