Steinmetz College Prep is really going places and its so exciting to see. Their new Dual Credit program means that college bound students can save tens of thousands of dollars. Their new Principal works hard every day to bring innovation into the classroom. I look forward to sending my children to Steinmetz to receive one of the best educations in the City of Chicago!
This school is not as bad as you hear people around you say. It all really depends on the people you hang out with, just like with every school you go to. But to be honest at the end of the school year there will be a lot of fights going to just like how every high school is in CPS. But overral Steinmetz is pretty decent.
I graduated from this school and went on to receive a Ph.D in Food Science from Michigan State University. The staff prepared me for a college education. I also like the excellent Alumni Association associated with the school. Best HS Alumni Association in the country. Definitely Best in the West.
The new principal has definitely turned this school around for the better! The IB program is very challenging and the friends I've made are amazing. I don't understand the reputation this school has...and I'm sure it will change in a few years with these drastic changes being made. The teachers care so much...I've never had so many great teachers in my life! My grades are phenomenal, and I haven't missed a day of school this year. Of course, some students have fights and maybe aren't as good as they should be, but doesn't every school have that small handful of bad kids? I love it here, and I'm sure you will, too!
