Round Lake Senior High school brought out many educational opportunities and benefits towards many students. The school made sure everyone has equal opportunity to garner as much educational knowledge. The brand new building and tools and computers widened the the scope and possibility for better learning. Newer technology enabled better communication and better understanding among teachers, mentors, and students. Graduating from Round Lake Senior High school opened me up to new opportunity and new experiences otherwise not taught by any other school. This High school has improved greatly in terms of provision, and educational standard. The teachers and mentors places their students up to a high standard and teaches them the value of accountability in terms of studies. The Services provided by the school are intermediate and staff is very accommodating and helpful to students and parents alike. Given my experiences in Round Lake Senior High School, I would not trade it for the world.

From the beginning of freshman year And then on, the teachers have been very supportive and extremely helpful. The school itself is nice as well, they made renovations and the school was new and improved in 2016 and they are currently making more renovations to the ticket booth and are making a tennis court for the tennis club. The classes themselves are very good! I’ve learned so many things that I can use in my everyday life, classes like psychology, biology, chemistry, math, etc. are extremely useful in figuring out my career goals. I also really appreciate that they give a lot of recources to the students like IPads, access to computers, access to printers, many activities involving STEM and other career oriented activities. Their college readiness aid is amazing because they give many informational meetings about the process that you need to go through to pick a college that is right for you and they have field trips to visit colleges.
In my honest opinion I think that this school has been good, it's definitely better than most subpar schools I've seen and I think the faculty have been good, I've made friends with some as well. I'm filled with glee as some have been so amiable and have shared the passion with me about subjects like chemistry or biology. However, that being said I think that some of the subject diversity is just alright, some more hands on subjects like metalshop or woodworking are left out and, I believe, are sorely needed. I've heard from the teacher grapevine that they did used to have these subjects but they had to be taken away for one reason or another.
