Illini West is an average high school. It does not really allow students to excel in a particular subject, as not many classes are available. I would like to see more options for students to have when taking STEM classes. Some teachers act as though they do not care about the students' well being and only want to get through the day.

I would like to see a new building come in place in the upcoming years so all students can be in one building together. Also, I love the teachers and the work that they do to ensure student success. They give you all the tools you need for college.
There are some teachers who favor certain types of students. Like for instance, if you're an althetemail then they'llama be more likely to help you. Some teachers favor you by gender. Some teachers know what their doing when they teach.
