Yorkville High School
#176 Best Public High Schools in Illinois
- Yorkville Community Unit School District No. 115, IL

Alum: When I went to Yorkville High School, I saw a lot of opportunity. This school had the resources and staff to support just about anyone. I was able to rely on my teachers multiple times to help me through any of my academic hardships I had during my time there. Furthermore, the school has an abundance of after school activities including a diverse range of clubs and sports. Personally I joined the robotics team for all for years of my venture at Yorkville High School, and I especially loved what they did with it back in 2018. They made an off-branch of the club for ornaments and competition to take place in the school itself with other students. This solved the "too many cooks in thew kitchen" problem that infested the club for the first three years I joined it. On the subject of the school itself, it is very clean, the staff is great, and I would be more than happy to send my own kids there if I had any. Overall, it was a great school experience!

Senior: West Aurora was a great school to attend! The teachers were very friendly and willing to help students when needed and they were very observant to their students; making sure everything was fine in life if one was acting unusual. Additionally, the school worked hard on giving the seniors a good last year even during the whole COVID-19 epidemic unlike a few schools in the surrounding areas.

Kaneland Senior High School

Senior: Kaneland Senior High School is a high-quality school. The teachers there are always willing to go the extra mile to help students. The college counselors are very helpful, they go out of their way to help a student feel less stressed about life after high school. Kaneland has many academic programs. There are many AP/advanced classes at Kaneland. Kaneland also partnered up with Fox Valley Career Center, which is a program that helps students earn college credit in high school. There are Criminal Justice, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Fire Science, Cosmetology and, many more. Kaneland also cares about the student's opinions. Students receive a survey about certain objectives that are changing at Kaneland and, through the survey students can voice the opinion and concerns. Through this, the student feels like they have a voice. I would like to see more diversity at Kaneland. Kaneland has a high standard of academical and getting the students involved.

Hinckley-Big Rock High School
#233 Best Public High Schools in Illinois
- Hinckley Big Rock Community Unit School District No. 429, IL
- 32 reviews
Alum: The school has a lot of great things to show for it. Many of the teachers will go above and beyond for their students, and with the proper motivation, students can well prepare themselves for college. The downside is there are also members of the school and administration who do not care as much about the school as their coworkers and do not add as much to the the students experience.
