Grayslake d127 is a great school district as I feel it sets its students up for success. Though, I feel as though the counselors should be more active in helping students find colleges and the application process.
I enjoyed that Grayslake Central focused on student life as well as the involvement of students. Any student can create a club or join any club they wish, as we are offered 70 plus clubs to join. Our sports could improve in how they fund certain sports more than others, but all of the students put in the work to their desired sport. One improvement I would make is to change college preparation because I feel it truly should start as soon as high school does. Our introduction to college applications was a month into senior year and too late to get a good headstart on the opportunities and qualities to improve our applications.
The teachers are great. It’s smaller than some schools so you get to know more people and become familiar with them.
The teachers at this school are top notch. Everyone really likes teaching, and the group of people you're learning with are all very similar to you in terms of learning difficulty and commitment. Only thing I'd like to see change is the communication of classes and access to counselors, although this is changing in the coming years after I graduate myself.
I loved my experience at Grayslake central it was a very comforting and homey school and the teachers give an amazing experience.
My experience at GCHS was great. I felt very comfortable at the school and safe. Being there felt very good knowing that it was a safe and full of great students there. One thing that I loved from this school was how good the academics were and how challenging they were as well.
I wouldn't consider my school much better or worse than any other I just have love for the town that I grew up in so I like it.
At Grayslake Central High School I enjoyed seeing the drive my teachers had to see us be successful in our classes. In my four years at this high school I have created a strong bond with many of my teachers due to their qualities of being friendly and caring. In the future, I hope to see improvements with the blendED learning that was newly introduced into our school this year.
Grayslake North has been a great experience. From the teachers, coaches, trainers and staff, it really is a family. The different courses available gives each student the chance to explore new things. There are so many clubs and activities that make getting involved outside of the classroom very easy.
My son had a great experience as distinct 127. He was enrolled in many AP classes, participated in soccer, and various clubs. The staff is knowledgeable and supportive. He was given the opportunity to become a leader in many situations throughout his career at Grayslake Central High School. He feels very prepared for the next 4 years at a college or University.
Vast majority of teachers genuinely want to see all of their students succeed and staff provide many resources to help students out. Tons of accelerated learning opportunities within a very safe and welcoming environment. There's also a strong sense of community between students, staff, and the town.
Overall GCHS is a great high school. I was able to excel in many things during my time in GCHS. The staff, faculty, and administrators were very welcoming and supportive and always wanted the best for their students.
A very good school district academically that has grown quite a bit in recent years. They offer a wide variety of classes and organizations for students to partake in.
I am a Senior who attends Grayslake Central High School, one of the two District 127 High Schools, and my experience at Grayslake Central has been a great one. I've had an excellent experience learning with phenomenal teachers that help get us ready for college with class content and work load. Besides the academics, Grayslake Central is a very welcoming and open environment that allows students to become the person they want to be with plenty of opportunities to find success and meet new people to build bonds with. I am proud to say I attend Grayslake Central and would recommend anyone who is planning to move in to our community to check our school out because it is a great place to grow and learn.
Over the course of my four years the administration has changed a lot. The teachers are incredible but higher up faculty should definitely listen to students more.
Grayslake is a fantastic community where teachers care about their students from the dean all the way down to the counselors to the gym teacher to the lunch lady. They get to know each individual child, they spend one-on-one time with them and they really get involved in their education in their growth
My experience in the Grayslake school district had been very positive. I know that I have received a good education and feel very prepared for college. The schools could be improved by allowing trans student to change in the locker rooms the prefer, but overall the school is accepting of all people.
