My experience in Foreman college and career academy it's an average school. I feel like theirs a lot to do such as field trips, more opportunities to go to colleges, a lot of fun sports, the teachers are very nice and pushing to get our work done. They have drivers ed which some schools don't offer. They give more freedom to students, like if they where in college. Treat us like if we are college students. Has a lot of programs after school. Really good food.

My experience at Foreman was honestly great and bad. I experienced my first heartbreake there, my first depression stage , and I found the love of my life. Foreman has helped me accept myself for who I am and to always try my best. Foreman always gets a bad rep but it’s not bad at all teacher care about you and so do the staff. Foreman was a great and irreplaceable experience i appreciate every staff member , teacher, cop , etc.
Foreman College and Career Academy is a average neighborhood school, like many CPS schools they are low funding. Not many teachers or staff, or even school supplies. They try their best to make the least bit work, few teachers do not really try but many do try to help the students out and understand them. The clubs are fun since they come from the CASA program and try make our CPS schools more of a place to feel involved. I feel the Foreman tries it's best to keep us involved too in their own ways, there is students of the month for each grade level and students get rewarded for keeping attendance and grades up. You can sometimes be even entered in raffles. Foreman really does do to the best of their ability to make the school a better learning environment.
