Great school! Good fine arts and sciences programs. The administrative staff are not all exceptional, the teachers are hit-or-miss. Overall a nice environment - there's enough people that you can find some you get along with. Very liberal atmosphere; good for growing young activists and philanthropists.

There's a large number of AP offerings, and a lot of racial/economic diversity, but of course the various demographics don't mix 100%, and the AP classes are mostly occupied by middle/upper-class white kids.
Review Evanston Township High School
Almost everyone I know has a horror story about his school (even me - it was a social/dating thing) HOWEVER I'm pretty glad I graduated from ETHS! It's a very nice, unique high school with a diverse [in race and personalities] mix of kids and teachers (compared to other IL high schools that I know of)! There's a lot of clubs and you can start your own if a teacher supports it and I made a lot of lifelong friends here...high school is what you make of it, in my opinion so try to stay positive throughout all 4 years y'all (i know i know definitely easier said than done).
Our school is known to be one of the top high schools for test scores in our state, as well as being known as the largest high school under one roof in the country! The staff is more involved, more thorough, more understanding, and more patient with the students that go here than many high schools I have had a glimpse of.
