Park Forest School District No. 163 Reviews

2 reviews
Teachers seem to care about their students, but they don't have the resources to challenge and help them learn at greater avenues. The elementary curriculum are lacking in rigor and the children are blatantly behind others in different areas. Overall, there needs to be some work done, so that these children can be the best that they can be.

The district has lost itself in the past couple years. It could be a lot better teacher wise. The education is really focused on honors students and could really care less for average or regular students.
