The opportunities Stevenson gives its students are tremendous. Anyone can find an enjoyable class with the multitude of classes offered. The state of the art technology gives students like myself a great hands-on experience with equipment some colleges don't even possess.

Pascack Valley is so incredible...I can't speak for anyone but myself, but my entire experience in this school has been so positive. We are a huge, supportive community of individuals who are passionate about our school, learning, and getting involved in everything we can. The teachers here are (for the most part) extraordinary and give their students a lot of freedom in terms of how they get to express themselves in class. Students also tend to find very close bonds with our teachers here, which is something special to Valley. Students are encouraged to participate in everything they can-there are so many opportunities to find out what you like to do here and truly make a difference both for yourself and for others.

This school offers countless opportunities for students. In combination with great academics and teachers that truly care about their students' success, HF has over 60 clubs and activities to get involved in. They are very helpful with students that need extra tutoring for their classes, as they have tutoring sessions every weekday and on weekends as well. Student population is very diverse and gives the students a unique experience compared to some other schools in the area.

There are so many opportunities for students to succeed, way more than any other school in the state. The counselors really care about you and support you in any decisions you make after college, because they understand that Minnetonka puts a lot of stress on students not everyone has to go to college. The community is great too, you feel like you belong wherever you go because there are many different clubs and activities for anyone to join. Although there is a lot of stress on students, you can manage it and it really helps you be more prepared for the rest of your life.

So far I have loved my experience. I enjoy all the clubs I am in because we do engaging activities. For example in Key Club, we have made a difference for cancer patients in a nearby town, as well as aid starving children in Haiti. Additionally, I enjoyed atheltics here, especially my swim team. This are sports and clubs for every type of person here.

There are so many opportunities at this school if you want to get ahead. There is a wide selection of AP and Honors classes, and for the most part the teachers of these classes are great! I especially love the history department. I have not had a bad teacher yet in history, although I have not had a really outstanding math teacher in the last few years. LHS also heavily stresses athletics over other activities. And although our athletics are good, the teams are ultra-competitive and extremely stressful for student athletes. One should not overlook the fantastic fine arts department or interesting clubs.

Let's be honest. I loved Hinsdale Central, and I'll always be grateful for the various opportunities it's given me and the tremendous impact it's had on my life. No matter who you are and what path you will take, always remember that you will always be part of the supportive Red Devil nation.

George W. Hewlett High School truly cares for its students. The highlights of my best experiences in George W. Hewlett High School was participating in many club activities. Because of Key Club, Art Club, Yearbook Club, Environmental Club, and Prom Committee, I appeared on Hewlett's local newspaper for my outstanding work. I was also offered as a position as Editor and Chief of Yearbook, President of Key Club, Treasurer of Art Club, and President of Prom Committee. Finally, I absolutely adore and continue to love the Senior Year Project. This gives an opportunity for students to find employment in the facility (of their desired major) and potentially work there. Teachers in this school try their hardest to give stepping stones to their students, ensuring employment and getting into the college of their choices. As for me, I currently work in John F. Kennedy Airport, handling international exports and got into my top choice school (Sacred Heart University).

My favorite experience so far was homecoming and the "spirit week" leading up to it because my school definitely did a good job with giving the freshman a memorable welcoming and making us feel like part of the community. the thing that I think makes my school unique is our open campus lunch. The reason I appreciate our lunch is because it gives us a sense of independence and teaches maturity, it also shows us that our school trusts us which I find important. Im very grateful that I get to go to my school and I would never want to go anywhere else!

The most commendable thing that Arrowhead has to offer, in my opinion, is the variety of classes. There are very few high schools that give students a chance to explore career paths before they go to college. Some courses confirmed my plans for college and others changed my mind. Overall, my courses and teachers have given me opportunities that I wouldn't have found anywhere else.

High school truly has been the best four years of my life. I have made connections with my teachers and counsellors here at this school. We have so much school spirit and everyone supports one another. There is always a helping hand just around the corner. For our first football game of my senior year we got to do a color throw which was awesome. About 400 of us went behind the football field and everyone got a little cup of orange powder. On the count of three we all got to throw it in the air together and it was really awesome. Our football games are also always themed and everyone dresses up for them. Also, all clubs and activities I have been able to join these past years have been great opportunities. Lincoln-Way West has opened many doors for me and I am thankful that I was able to attend such a great school.

I love attending Southern Regional High School. The teachers are great and really strive to help their students become successful. The students that also attend there are for the most part very friendly. The sporting events are like no other. Lots of students come out to support their fellow classmates in all the different sports Southern offers. The clubs are great. All in all, Southern Regional High School was a fantastic school for me to attend for my 4 years of high school.

All of the teachers are amazing and you won't be able to find better teachers anywhere else. The activities the school provides are great. Like student-led assemblies where they make inappropriate jokes about teachers, dance coronations with twerking, and their funny social media accounts.

I enjoy River Hill a lot! I've made many friends that I know will last a lifetime and I'm so thankful for that! The one thing I really don't like is the competitiveness in the community. Sometimes competition is good and helps you to succeed, but sometimes it produces anxiety and stress which is unhealthy to everyone especially young people.
