My son is finishing up his Junior year here, and I've been very impressed so far. Pros: Academics. His work, not just his grades, have improved. Social: a much better group of students here, motivated to learn, although it seems they have plenty of fun, too! Emotional: The kids are treated as young college students. That means not a lot of hand-holding, and he's really blossomed under a program which assumes his competence. Cons: Parent Involvement: There isn't any. Communication between the school and home is nearly nonexistent. Marketing: There's a whole lot of pushing further study at DeVry, and very little support or information given about other college options. Overall, I am very pleased with the program thus far, as is my son.

As a pilot program it is indicative of the standard CPS schools, but somehow it has been able to overcome the CPS beuracracy and engage it students. In the end, this is what ALL schools should be, advance training, a push towards excellence and fast becoming one of the top High Schools in Chicago.

This school is poorly managed and the principal is extremely rude to everyone.He makes the students feel small by talking down to them and being highly critical.There is not a very healthy environment.The students never even get a lunch break. Most students have either left or been very dissappointed.

What an excellent school this is, I transferred from the Hubbard High School I.B. program, and I must say, for the most part I enjoy being here very much. Some of the students i admit can be..annoying for lack of a better term, and they aren't dealt with in the best manner. Other than that, I have no complaints.

This school is for students who are verrryyyy interested in technology. Personally coming from being in the System Networking field at DeVry as a high school student. Too complicated and boring. Students don't get the normal high school experience. Pros: Off Campus Lunch & The school pays for all college classes Cons: Getting there can be a hassle, no sports, not a lot of students, not a normal high school, not so good high school teachers, boring school period

Though this school offers a great oppurtunity for youths in Chicago it is not a school for those who want to continue their education outside the walls of DeVry University. Also the school has poor funding and a principal who is never present when needed and no there to help out needy students. Another thing is the school only has about 6 teachers which isnt nearly enough to get enough credits for students who want to graduate. To conclude this school needs t be changed drastically before it deserves that 7/10 ranking.

The workload at DeVry is a lot, and that pushed my daughter to do better, and focus on her studies. DeVry definitely made her a better student, and an individual as well.

I like the opportunities that this school offers. I wish that there were more schools like this one in my neighborhood.

This school hosts a wonder opportunity for incoming juniors, but of course, as with most new schools, there are still some kinks that need to be worked out
