Daniel hale Williams preparatory school of medicine is an exceptional high school. The academics are not as challenging as other schools. The teachers are kind but most definitely will not let anything slide when it come down to the work. I do not prefer to eat the food here but that is my choice; other students eat the food, so I know that it is edible. The principle is a very nice woman who believes in success in the students who attend school here. Daniel hale Williams prep is a slightly diverse school; the majority of students are African American. There are programs that Daniel hale Williams prep have a partnership with to prepare students for college; two of them are one goal and Chicago scholars. But overall this is a nice school.
My experience with Daniel Hale Williams Preparatory School of Medicine at DuSable is very good I had the best 4 years ever there they taught me so many things that was life changing.
