Township High School District No. 214 Reviews

D214 is a great learning atmosphere for all ages freshman through senior. It provides wonderful learning opportunities and extra curricular involvement to every background, and the teachers are some of the best providing a rigorous yet inviting way of teaching. To improve the district, some of the teachers need to take his or her jobs more seriously, but the opportunities for involvement in the schools are unmatched in other districts. Overall a wonderful district, but the administration cannot allow unqualified teachers to instruct learning practices.
Review Township High School District No. 214
D214 has been working on many cool improvements. Overall I'm sure my education (at BGHS) was much higher quality than many students in the nation. However, when I was there, many things needed improving. The school felt more like a jail than a welcoming school environment. There are some great teachers, but also many who couldn't care less about their students, even though they may be talented in their respective fields. The administration seems to be supportive of the arts. There could be more options for sports, but there is a decent variety for both girls and guys.

At BGHS, students have ample opportunity to take AP courses beginning their freshman year. Most students in one AP course are in all APs available to them. Teachers of prep level courses often don't care about their students and are burnt out and easily frustrated. Get ready to fight your counselors tooth and nail to get in the courses you want/need.

Overall needs improvement, but still wonderful school district.
I have had a great experience in D214, it provides students with many opportunities for career related exploration, college help, and a great education. The classes are excellent, and each student is able to pick courses based on career interest or academic level. The teachers push the students to be the best, which is one of the reasons it is one of the top districts in the state. One thing I would like to see change is the homework load of certain teachers. A student should not be assigned an hour of homework every night in one class, given that a student taking 5 classes would then need to complete 5 hours of homework. Another change would be that teachers understand when technology does not work, given that everything is done on the iPad, and if an iPad crashed at night that student would not be able to complete assignments.
