Lake Zurich Community Unit School District No. 95 Reviews

My favorite thing about Lake Zurich High School is definetly the community. I've met all of my closest friends in High School and going to sporting events and talent shows and plays are so much fun! Also, the faculty is amazing. Every single teacher I've had had taught me so much. I feel as if I am extremely prepared for college. The student resources are an extremely helpful tool for learning. The math/ science resource center has been a lifeline for me and I think that every school should put in place a similar tool if they do not have it already. The recent installation of Studio C is also a great factor for group projects/ a place to hang with friends and study and be able to talk without being yelled at for speaking too loudly. Most students do not attend their study hall, so the only recommendation I would make is to allow students to sit in the cafeteria if there is no space in the library or studio c so they can work together.

I have grown up, more or less, on LZ schooling. It is a rich school, not overly so, but well off. The facilities are mildly dated and the food is generally to be avoided (except sushi day). LZ excels in creating an excellent atmosphere for students, which is what really matters for education. The teaching staff is incredible, truly some of the best humans on the planet. They understand how to teach interestingly on the whole and engage classes. I was also privileged to receive an iPad which has been helpful, but not perfect. The school is full of spirit and has relatively few incidents; the widely reported scandals are important, but not very reflective on the teachers and students as a large group
LZHS has been a great experience for me. I have been given a great education with challenging courses yet rewarding. The staff is very personable and they all want the students to succeed and go onto some type of education post graduation. The student body is very supportive of each other. It does not matter if you are in sports, drama, art, etc everyone is there encouraging you to work to your potential. I really have enjoyed attending a smaller high school. My graduation class is 496 students which has given me the opportunity to get to know most of the student body in my grade and we are all very close with each other.
