Township High School District No. 214 Reviews
Among many schools, District 214 has a great college readiness system. Counselors, teachers, or even staffs are here to support their students and make sure they’re on the right path. I really appreciate the staffs developing a relationship with their students. District 214 offers many programs too, which is a great start for college readiness. However, District 214 does have some flaws. There isn’t a ton of discipline among students who do not follow school guidelines. Other than that, District 214 has great education and prepares students for the near future.
The district overall is very good. The teachers are not only good at explaining things, but are also very understanding. The administrators, from what I have seen, are very encouraging and care about more than academics. There are lots of school spirit events, but they are carefully planned not to distract from grades. The counselors are very helpful and easy to contact. If you have questions, you can always ask a teacher, counselor, anyone from the office, or even another student. The majority of students are rather welcoming, but you'll have to make an effort to make friends in most cases. Most of my friends went to a different school, so I had to go out of my way to make friends as most kids already had friend groups from their previous school. I will say, some teachers or subjects feel a little bogged down, but I feel that's more of an issue with the curriculum than with the person teaching it.
I had a very good experience with district 214. I attended Buffalo Grove High School from 2013-2017 and adored the friends I made and the teachers I had. I wish there could have been more of a "college success" program though. We were all pressured to apply to college, but after applying and getting in, there wasn't anything else. I would love to see a program go into place that helps students succeed in college. This program could discuss everything about college, academics included but not primarily focused on that. Anything to help kids succeed once they're on their own.
