Libertyville School District No. 70 Reviews
FRUSTRATING! Too much homework, outdated curriculum and ideas, and no concern for students with special needs. The administration does not respond to parents. We have struggled to get services for our special needs student and have spent thousands of dollars on testing and outside tutoring. Our regular students have had good, ok, and bad years. The quality of the elementary teachers is varying but most are ok. Highland has been more bad than good.
There are a couple of disgruntled parents who are repeatedly posting the same poor school ratings on Niche and Great Schools and it's so sad that they feel they have to work the system this way. This is a wonderful community with great schools. My children went through D70 schools and I found the leadership strong, teachers dedicated and engaged, and a school community filled with people who care. Our D70 graduates go on to have amazing careers, some even returning to teach in our schools. Parents here expect the best and they get it. Schools are safe and clean, the curriculum is up to date with textbooks no more than a few years old, they offer STEM and STEAM, and international language beginning at fifth grade, as well as special education and gifted education. Visit a school and see for yourself or check out the parent surveys on the school district website at d70schools.org.
I like the overall commmunity! School sirit and school culture are great. The arts department is really good too. However, I could appreciate better teachers in certain subjects and more manageable homework schedules.
