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.

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.
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
