The rankings for this school are accurate. So many opportunities, so many things to do, and a great program. A fine school, with a funnel in the end toward great colleges. In a great area, to boot.

The teachers here are great. However the students are very close-minded. If you are not very well off or went to Westview Hills Middle School you are considered scum and feel very left out.

I was a straight A student in the city. In Hinsdale I was getting Z's! The CPS is THAT BAD. My teachers cared, the parents cared, and ...  Read more

The school is serious about education. The guidance counselors start in 8th grade directing the kids towards college and don't let up. This is a college prep school without an equal in the area. This area is affluent and the school tends to attract over-achieving children of over-achieving parents ...  Read more
