Waukegan Community Unit School District No. 60 Reviews
I graduated from Waukegan High School about 3 years ago. What I liked about the high school was the different after school activities they offered. They had marching band, Latinos Unidos, Chess club, STEM club, basketball team JV and Varsity and other sports. They had various AP courses to take and different extra credit courses as well, for example wood shop, art, Jrotc. Most teachers would be flexible and stay after school to help you understand a subject or catch up on tests. Some teachers push you to be the best you can be. What i didn't like was the lunch that they offered students, it sometimes looked under cooked or not appetizing at all. Some teachers felt like they didn't really care or know how to approach different students that didn't understand the material. Sometimes it felt like I was just trying to pass and not really learning anything. Some teachers wouldn't really push you or challenge you.
I've had many fun experiences being at Waukegan High School. I've been able to meet so many different kinds of people who have all influenced me in some way, shape, or form. We may not be all that great when it comes to finances, but I've had some very influential teachers who not only taught me lessons off the book, but lessons about life.
I just graduated from Waukegan High School and my experience was pretty bad. The teachers are great, they were very determined to see their students succeed in everything they did. But my poor experience is more directed towards the school district itself. It is one of the messiest districts I have ever seen. They are very poor in everything they do, they switched the high schools around this year and didn’t think about it at all. Kids were put in classes that they weren’t qualified for and because of that, that resulted in some of them dropping them or failing. And at the freshman building due to them not having anyone to look up to there were fights that escalated every single day for the first two months of school. And the freshman on track graduation rate had dropped down to the 60s since my freshman class four years ago when we were at 82%.
