MILITARY FAMILY do not put your child in a North Chicago school, the schools are TERRIBLE! It's sad that out husband and wives have to go and fight in a war, and our children have to go to school and fight a war. My daughter went to Neal, it is one of the worst school's in the district, unfortunantly this is the school in our district if you live in Housing in Great Lakes, the children are EXTREMLY BAD, their is gang activity in the school, girls are always getting pregnant, most of the teachers forgot why they became teachers, The school smell like mildew, I am suprised that this school is open for all the things that go on there. I HAVE TO BE HONEST, Mr. Grenda the Principle is doing the best that he can, with what he have, I believe that he is not getting the support that he need to make this school a success, he cares about the children, and he dosent hide behind a desk to just receive a pay check. He first need to get rid of all the horrible teachers that are their, children need positive teachers in their lives. MILITARY FAMILY move to Gurnee, Libertyville, Forest Park,Lakeville and all other area around areas mentioned. The schools are excellent in those areas.
