Congratulations to the culinary students and their teachers! They prepared a wonderful array of food for the staff on December 19. The food was varied and delicious, and served in such an attractive and fine manner. Great job!

I'm a substitute teacher and i'm writing this for other subs who are using this site to find schools to work at. The teachers and administration at this school are great and very helpful. Overall the students at this school are pretty respectful, however if you're black like me you need to have thick skin a couple of the older young men make racial comments.I even had one girl come up to me and apologize for some of their comments, but like I said most of the students are respectful. The only real bad thing about this school and the reason I may not return is because of security. I called them twice yesterday, because I had young men throwing things and making rude comments, they never came, and none was in the hallway, the students even told me that security would not come (this is weird never happened even at the worst high schools) I find this very dangerous for me and the students, because something much worse could have bee going on.

I love this school. The teachers are nice, you have the chance to make up work, The counselors are nice, And they offer career academies. The only bad thing is that the nurse is either never there or doesn't do anything. My friend had a really bad headache once and the nurse told her she couldn't do anything about it and got sent back to class. Overall, the school is very good.

Juarez is an amazing school because everyone in the community (administration, teachers, staff, parents) is involved and wants the best for the students.

Ugh. Juarez used to be good. But now teachers just care about scores. They forced me to take AP but I can't even handle that class. The new principal (and all the new teachers, since they fired most of the good ones) care about pushing scores, not teaching us. I am glad I am graduating and out of that stinkhole.

As community high schools (i.e. non-selective schools) in the Chicago area go, this is one of the best. The dedication of the staff, support and empathy of the administration (especially the newest one), and strong community involvement attest to the superb educational environment that we provide students, not to mention our consistently rising test scores...rising like an Eagle, that is. Go Juarez!

This is a great school for my child, he learned how to be a computer expert. The teachers and the principals are great, and friendly towards the students and their parents. The school also has plenty of before and after school activities. And parent involvement is amazingly well, they mantain us very well informed, and they help us with workshops and training.
