OUTSTANDING MAGNET PROGRAM!!! My child attends the International Affairs and Business magnet program at Crystal Lake. We have experienced an amazing group of dedicated educators. Now wonder there is always a waiting list to get into this program. Middle school can be a scary experience but don't listen to the negativity especially if you are looking to place your child in a well established,well run magnet program.

This school is amazing! This has helped my kids throughout the past few years. They have amazing teachers that care about your child and have an amazing Magnet program. They have a language program (Spanish, French, Chinese) that extends into high school and gives many high school credits, and a science/technology/engineering program which is amazing, too! They even have a Civil Air Patrol, where you do military drills and even learn how to fly a plane! The hallways are safe and clean, and the staff are responsible. They answer your calls/emails/letters and take them seriously! My kids have attended this school for every year of their middle school education! Better than the elementary school I teach at! :-)

General population teachers are not fit to teach, magnet teachers are great. Not fair to magnet teachers

Luckily I graduated before the new principal started changing things. The teachers are ok but most of them have left or are leaving. I didn't have any issues with bullying but I did see a lot of other kids getting bullied. There are usually fights between the students. Most of the students are disrespectful to the teachers. I don't recommend sending your child here its a very bad school. The academy is gone so don't even bother taking the time to go see the school.

Administration teaches students that different people have different rules to follow; rules only apply for some people. The Principal changed her son's grades in multiple classes throughout his term at the school.

96% of teachers are awesome, but are never recognized. The principal labels the literacy coaches (who never have classrooms) as the only 'highly-qualified teachers' in the school.

Magnet program is comparable to any ordinary public school's regular curriculum. Discipline is lax. Administration doesn't support teachers. Teachers were encouraged to 'show documentaries' rather than teach

There were five student started fires in the 2014-15 school year. The fire alarm went off for two of them, and only one was acknowledged to be a fire. What kind of school pulls the plug on the /fire alarm/?
