0/10... transferring. Your child will not get accepted into a good college if they attend this high school,

The school has been trying to improve its reputation ever since the new principal has taken the lead. BUT the student body itself HAS NOT been improved which might surprise others. Want proof? Well, when I graduated, we had a surprise guest: the CEO of CPS, Forrest Claypool who visited only our high school out of all CPS because apparently Lake View had the highest graduation year. That might sound like a good thing, right? Not if you knew that student who didn't meet the graduation requirements STILL graduated.Another example, recently a kid with autism was physically bullied by another student... more specifically FLIPPED sending the kid with autism to the hospital. Yup. Lake View High School DOES NOT address the issue of bullying. Oh... Forgot to tell you! A classmate of mine had brought a taser to school and was playing around with it in class. I approached the deans with the issue and it was never addressed.Yes, they might have a great STEM program and other great opportunities like College Possible, etc but trust me, IT IS NOT WORTH putting your child through what he/she sees at Lake View.

I love this school. It is a diamond in the rough with wonderfully caring teachers - who actually call to check on your son/daughter if they are sick. The staff - especially Ms Hershfang - is caring, supportive and LISTENS. My son has enjoyed his 4 years at LVHS and I'd recommend this school in a heartbeat. Go for the AP classes if possible.

I'm a student at this school. I love it! The teachers are very nice and helpful. If you're struggling on homework or what you might be learning in that class, they'll take off their lunch time for you. Or there is also a club where they help you on homework or if you're struggling in math. They have amazing clubs for you to join. This is a really good school! I highly recommend it.

I graduated in 2009 from this school. If you want a great education go with the honor and AP classes. The regular classes are to easy and will not prepare you for college, at all! The teachers are wonderful and so are the clubs. I personally recommend the Mayor Daley book club, Asian club, and environmental club. If you take higher level courses and get involved with the different clubs the school has to offer you will have a wonderful experience!
