I started my education at River Forest and I will be graduating this year, my experience has been a journey in finding myself. At River Forest you have teachers that know each student and take the time to get to know them as a person, and you build friendships with every student. Yes, maybe we lack in where our education should be, but if you choose to go to college you will be ready enough to get on your feet.

What I liked about River Forest is that it was a small school district and everyone knew everyone. People treated you like family around there. The teachers were able to help you on their free time. I have created special friendships there and will always be thankful for the opportunity River Forest gave me. I am forever grateful to have been placed in such a special school like them.
I love how diverse and accepting the kids are of it. Although it is a poor school, we are small which means more one on one time with teachers for help and of course being closer together with friends. Also you pretty much know everyone's names.
