First off, this school is totally overcrowded. Now, as others have mentioned, this school (and the whole North Palos district for that matter) bend over backwards for ESL students. I prefer the old (non-PC) term ESL over ELL because with all the extra resources the district provides, the qualifying students and their families do not need to focus on learning English. They get it spoon-fed to them at school, not by their parents. Therefore they do not need to worry about speaking English in their homes, but rather their first, native tongue. What a deal.Therefore, if your child is "average" and can speak English fluently but has other needs such as speech or reading help, do not expect very much from this district.This school also has a significant portion of students on free/reduced lunch status, soon to be breakfast as well. Another great deal. Along with the generous ESL support, the above facts further enhance the common welfare mentality of the qualifying parents and diverts valuable resources away from the general population of students, crippling the school.Thanks to all this, sub-par school. Don't blame the teachers. Blame the generosity of the state, the district and above all, the parents.
