22 Parent Reviews for Oak Park and River Forest High School

This school has teachers that you can really learn from, but with my experience a lot of the staff doesn't really care about doing anything that they don't absolutely have to do.

I love this school because my son can walk to it, and they offer some excellent clubs and courses. It's not even close to being family-centered in its practices.

OPRF is an excellent high school. As a parent of a sophomore I have been pleased with the overall quality of the institution. My only issue is that the school does not have an advisory system.
