I went to Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School , which is a part of district 97 . My experience at the school was wonderful . I thought that the academic area was taught in a very well manner. The community in the school was mostly friendly. The teachers were very nice and inclusive to all of the students.
As a former student of district 97, I can't extol its virtues enough. Teachers use multiple methods to promote learning and extra curricular activities are always available. The facilities are top notch. Oak Park is known for its diversity, and district 97 reflects that.
Great school district and safe area to live in with great police protection. Close to everything and I always feel safe knowing that our local community takes pride in making sure that all local events are always prepared correctly. Great local school community.
