Cook County Schools Reviews

Cool county schools prepared me for the world both academically as well as through work ethic. If you fit into this small communities version of “Normal” or “perfect”, you’ll be completely fine. Stick out in any way, and these rednecks might show you their bad sides. I have had wonderful teachers who have poured their soul into their work and have become role models of mine. On the other hand, some of the teachers shouldn’t be allowed NEAR children let alone to TEACH them. I was prepared for my adult life in certain aspects thanks to cook county schools, but I will say that I struggle with body image and self confidence due to the experiences I’ve had with cook county schools faculty and students. The facilities are great, and the sports get most of the funding so no need to worry about having the nicest uniforms. The arts on the other hand, good luck getting funding.

Cook County school system has its good and its bad. It's a relatively smaller size, so most students know each other, which makes it easier to feel comfortable. However, this makes it easier for students to branch off into cliques. One thing I would change is the limited amount of extra curricular activities that it offers.
The main staff in the administration doesn't really care about the well being of the students. They just want money. Most of the teachers care extremely for the students and they should be the ones making the decisions. I just wish money wasn't the school's obvious main focus.
