Open Quote Even with the astounding work load these kids face, Young's students seem extremely happy to be there. Most of the kids are serious about their school work, so that attitude permeates the building. My daughter has told me that the principal at times sits in the student lunchroom and does her work. She is very approachable, and it is clear that she is trying to keep abreast of what is going on with the kids by being there. The administration also plans plenty of fun events for the kids. As a parent, I am most impressed with the communication. There are many informational meetings to keep parents aware of what is going on. My son went to another one of the top high schools, and I have to say I was in the dark most of the time when it came to his school. I think I attended one parent meeting (other than report card pick up) in all four of his high school years. I've already been to about four for my daughter, and she is only in her 5th month of freshman year. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
