Review Grayslake Community High School District No. 127
Grayslake Central has an amazing set of teachers, and the students thrive off of that and are able to become very successful academically. Every effort has been made to encourage students to challenge themselves by taking Honors and AP classes. As a student I feel very safe at this school, and have never really seen anything that gives cause for concern. The only thing that could be better is the help given to students to help them understand the move to college. When I was a junior, I felt that I lacked a lot of information about the transition. While we were given things like financial aid seminars, I felt the school could have gone beyond that to explain the entire process, so students and families who were experiencing this for the first time knew what to expect beyond FAFSA. Overall though, a great school with a great environment to become successful in. The school's staff genuinely want to help the students be the best they can be, both academically and in the community.
Girl sports are not given the same funding as the boy sports. Boys baseball received a new electronic score board, and the girls revived cat litter to fill in the holes on the softball field. There are a great diversity of students from all backgrounds, and an Honors and AP program for excelerated learners. There are many art and humanities classes offered and there is a charter program with the local technical campus for vocational learning options. Student couslers do not take there job seriously, and provide poor outlets for struggling students.
I like how Grayslake really pushes students to work harder and achieve their goals. The system focuses on getting students ahead and pushing them forward into success. With a combination of AP courses and a fantastic team of teachers, the school district does a fantastic job of getting students ready for the world beyond highschool, whether that be college or otherwise. It's a great place to live and a great place to go to school.
