Open Quote I was on the original faculty in 1958. I taught general science and coached freshman football and wrestling. I think it was a very good school with a great student body. We returned in 1991 for a family funeral and visited with some of the faculty at the school. I was impressed with the growth of the school in size and reputation -- impressions re-enforced while visiting with the Assistant Principal of Oak Park River Forest HS in October 2010. Bill Wright Close Quote

Open Quote This is one of the worst educational facilities that I have ever attended. The teachers are one of the best examples that any parent can ask for, but the fact that the students and the school board only care about the "reputation" (if we have one) that they are willing to spend unnecessary amount of money on trash cans instead of supplies. The violence of this school is more of a cruel joke of a prison. 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.
