Schaumburg High School Reviews

Starting my freshmen year of high school, I couldn’t wait to finally leave the school. As a senior I am very disappointed with my school. There would be physical or verbal fights almost every other week at my school. Students are very disrespectful to the teachers. There have been many instances of bullying and nothing is done about it. Senior year I took many AP classes and all of the teachers were the best teachers I have ever had. AP and honors teachers are the only teachers that prepare you for college. There is a very big academic gap between students and the administration does nothing to resolve it, instead they push them to take more higher level classes that increases the struggle and lower grades. I am also very disappointed in the involvement at our school. We barely have any assemblies or fun after school events in comparison to other D211 schools.

The one thing that I really enjoyed about Schaumburg High School is that it is a very friendly and welcoming school to students from all backgrounds! There are lots of after school activities for that are just right for all students. The one thing I would like to see change is I want the teachers to actually care about student success. It would be very wrong of me to say that none of the teachers care because there are some very wonderful teachers out there, but I feel like most of the teachers are there just to get paid and make it through the day. Personally I’ve had a great time here at Schaumburg and I know that there are many other students who will agree with me.
I have had a great experience so far at Schaumburg High School. So many of the teachers have inspired me, relating what we are learning in class to real life. My counselor is always there when I need her. The office staff is friendly and helpful. I love the variety of classes offered, so I can explore different subjects to try to figure out what I want to do for college. There are so many extra curricular activities available in addition to sports. SHS provides a lot of opportunity and support.
