Westview Hills Middle School
147 Best Public Middle Schools in Illinois
- Maercker School District No. 60, IL
Alum: The teachers here genuinely care about their students so much and create a friendly, hard working environment that builds community and trust. Cross country is highly competitive here with committed, experienced, likable coaches, but all of the other sports are not competitive. It has a great number of clubs here for it's size. This is the most diverse school I have witnessed and socially most students feel included and welcomed by other students. After going to high school, I realized how great the teachers and community was here at Westview! It was a great middle school to build a foundation on before high school. (Also it has a great band program and is strong overall in education but I was very unprepared for my science courses in high school).

Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart
- Private School
- Bellevue, WA
Senior: Forest Ridge is a great school to attend, the academics are very challenging and the teachers know how to push students to create the best work possible. Since the academics are quite rigorous, there is a slightly stressed and competitive environment at the school. However, this does not mean that the student community is not strong. From my personal experience, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, especially new student entering the high school. I would recommend this school to prepare for college readiness as some of the courses mimic college level work. Athletics is also another fun part of the Forest Ridge experience, there is a no-cut policy that ensure that all students can participate in any sports; this is a great place to meet new people in other grades and where I made some of my best friendships!
