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 feel so privileged to be apart of a school that integrates students into bettering themselves and reaching academic success. Also, if a student is found struggling with a subject our school offers many resources with teachers there to help students understand and improve on a subject. Lake Zurich High School is comprised of great kids, teachers, programs, community integration and much more. I believe that Lake Zurich High School will continue to plant the seeds of effective learning. But just like every school their is room for improvement even if it’s a smallest thing. I think my school should change its library system and make it more appealing to us millennials because now a days less students are reading from hard solid books because the selections of books aren’t appealing to most.
One of the things I liked the most about my school was the willingness to accept change. My freshman year, It felt like the entire student body of upperclassmen was out to get me. It felt like we were universally disliked. The administration and student leadership at the school realized changes needed to be made, so they implemented things like an all-student student section, dress up theme days for the entire school, and positions for the upperclassmen to mentor the underclassmen. As a Senior now I think the culture is much improved and now view us as one united student body. The school also has all the resources you would need to succeed in school, along with a thriving arts program and well funded sciences.
