Consolidated School District No. 158 Reviews

158 is perfect for students who fit into the box. Any students who are a challenge emotionally, developmentally, or academically are either ignored, encoraged to take alternate schooling (home school or on line learning) or targeted for removal. Many students have resorted to home education due to excessive bullying by fellow students, administrators, or security personel. Classes are overcrowded, it is hard to get required classes, and individuality is frowned upon. It is college prep only. There are no skill training courses available. Millions have been spent on a new football field, but text books are unavailable. Teachers who quit midyear are not replaced, leaving students without a scheduled class. Focus is on conformity and punishment rather than development. Many students are suicidal or exhibit school refusal due to the excessive stress of overcrowding and unrealistic expectations.
Review Consolidated School District No. 158
Fine Arts don't get that much attention, if that changes it's the perfect school. The school district is in a very nice suburban setting with very dedicated teachers and students alike. It's nice and clean as well with updates to some of the older buildings every few years.
Huntley High School helps provide resources that every student will need. There is tutoring ever offered during the day to help students. The school has a great library. They provide group collaboration rooms that make group work easy to accomplish. The school just recently had a field house added to the building as long with a a new science wing.
