Stark County High School
#244 Best Public High Schools in Illinois
- Stark County Community Unit School District No. 100, IL
- Rating 3.82 out of 5 34 reviews
Alum: I loved going to Stark County. I was able to be involved in everything and get to know everyone and every member of the faculty, including the janitors. However, if you aren't into sports there isn't much for you, but they are improving. They say that your friends from high school won't last, but from this school, they will. The school is so tight-knit within itself and the community. The school is the heart of this tiny county. We may not have a ton of resources, but the dedicated teachers are always looking for alternatives and looking for ways to prepares us for college and the workforce. Another great thing about this school is that you don't feel pressured that college is the only option. They definitely made trade schools and 2-year degrees a valuable option. I loved this school and I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.

Wethersfield Junior/Senior High School
- Wethersfield Community Unit School District No. 230, IL
- Rating 4.1 out of 5 20 reviews
Senior: I like how involved the community is with the school. Almost everything at Wethersfield High School feels safe and like home. I've gone to this school my whole life, so I may have a bias opinion, but I think most concepts are exceptional. I think this school should incorporate better food choices for the students. I also believe everyone in the school should focus more on the academics than the athletics. Sports are very important to many at Wethersfield High School, maybe even too important. I believe if they toned it down on the sports, students would try to focus more on their academics.

Galva Junior/Senior High School
- Galva Community Unit School District No. 224, IL
- Rating 3.38 out of 5 21 reviews
Senior: The faculty are very nice and more than willing to help you exceed.
Every year, more clubs and organizations are created to cater to the interests of the students. Students are allowed to create clubs themselves so long as they find a sponsor within the school (which is more than easy to do.)
The student body as a whole are very kind and supportive of their fellow students. Everyone's friends with everyone in a school like Galva Jr./Sr. High School.
Students are also allowed to take college classes concurrently with their high school classes from their freshman year: however, this is totally optional. This is a great program for exceptionally brilliant students. Many students graduate from high school while also graduating from Black Hawk College with their associates degree.
There are not a whole lot of diversity, mostly because Galva is a small, rural Midwestern town. However, students are accepting of all ethnicities and racism is practically nonexistent in this school.
