PALATINE, IL Fremd HS versus Palatine HS; What is the REAL difference in quality of education AND people ?

Asked by Jim, Arlington Heights, IL Sun Jun 14, 2009

Viewing homes in Palatine IL, we noticed the prices for homes in the Fremd HS district were more expensive and the homes were also much older than the ones available in the Palatine HS district. We definitely prefer the newer homes in the Palatine district but the HS isn't close in academic ranking to Fremd. Can anyone give us a real/down to earth comparison of Fremd versus Palatine HS ? We've viewed sites and simply from reading (not speaking with anyone) it appears only 47% of families own homes who attend Palatine and it's 35 % non-caucasian. Fremd on the other hand has 81% of the homes owned by Fremd student's families and its 17% non-caucasian. Palatine HS appears more diverse, which is acceptable, but does anyone have 1st hand info as to the real difference in quality of education and/or if Palatine HS has gang/crime related issues ?
