I've been in this school long enough to see actual change in some instance it's great in some not.The good things are you get allot of support from everyone you are pushed to succeed even if you don't want to the teachers I commend them for being so patient and taking all the bs from disrespectful students amd should be awarded with a medal some teachers just go to pick up a paycheck most of them don't! Now the bad part is the unfairness to the foreman students administration and deens have some sort of favoritism towards certain students I see this as a big contribution as to why these students don't respect the adults in that building in conclusion the school has had great change some good some bad all in all of these problems can be fixed this school would be going down a great path and students would want to go to there neighberhood school like this one.

This school is taking many baby steps towards becoming a better place for learning. There are students with great potential and many end up at top colleges locally and nationally. This school lacks of parental support, so parents, rather than critique, join and be present. Many teachers work diligently and arduous to support the student body. The administration could do a better job fostering, identifying, supporting and understanding the essentials needs of the majority Hispanic population. Students and teachers are sure trying to improve the school. The school needs consistent and strong leadership, not enabling administrators and absentee parents. To make this school a better place parents must actively participate assuming responsibility along with the teachers. To those who criticize, must walk on the shoes of the many teachers that in a daily basis spend more than 8 hours a day acting as surrogate parents in addition to teaching . Our school population does need a positive change in school culture. CPS needs to seriously invest in neighborhood schools- they are rough gems.

I go to this school. It's a level 2 school now cause of the new principal. They have put alarms on all exit doors so no kid could ditch class. Only the center and auditorium doors are unlocked. They also hired new security and changed the school a lot. It's not that bad of a school I just wish they improve the conditions of the school. It seriously needs air conditioning for one thing.

my son goes there now and long story short does not do any homework ever arrives late on a daily basis and cuts regularly and still manages to be a senior after 3 years of this behavior you would think he would not have made it to senior but he has this will not be benificial for his adult life im sure.THIS SCHOOL IS A BIG JOKE! and dont get me started on the thug mentality of the youth there. the school does not deserve any stars at all in its ratings

I use to go to this school. And to this day I don't understand why they haven't closed it down. With how inadequate the material being taught and how the students can get away with almost anything ( for the right price ( yes students pay the security to look the other way when their doing something they know they shouldn't be)). The point of schooling is to learn and prepare the youth to take control when it's time for thier generation to be lead our nation. Foreman high school hasn't/isn't and probably won't be the best providing a quality education for the leaders of tomorrow. EAMA

This is a great neighborhood school. The assistant principal works closely with the students and the parents. When I enrolled my children he took the time to speak with us. Everytime I come in he is so busy but he still takes the time to speak to me. My children were scared at first but they love the school and are happy to be there than the other schools. For this type of school it is great! I get phone calls from the teachers all the time and they are helpful. I wish they would give more homework and have more chances for kids after school.

Foreman is fun!!!!! Its great, classes are good, the teacher are nice and caring. the problem is that some student are disrepectful to student and teachers, and gangs are not really a problem. just don't come and show your tattoos that disrepectful to rival gangs. the dicipline is the good they jump right-o-way. fights beween gangs or student aren't alot. but on freshy friday the are. freshman get pick on that day pretty bad. but foreman is a great school.

it is all within the students mind and up to themselves to take advantage of what is offered at this school. I graduated from there not long ago and I now have my Bachelor Degree from a top university. I came into this school without speaking a word of English and graduated knowing enough to survive in a college campus. There are great people working here every day, trying to improve the lives of the students, it is up to them to take in what is being taught to them. Closed minds are like dead ships anchored in the desert, it is time to open ourselves to a sea of possibilities.

Foreman has a good strong programs in AP. Excellent dedicated teachers in most areas. The foreign Language Department is lacking. Science and history Departments are very good.
