It would be nice to see Oak Lawn's test scores and general reputation return to what it was not so long ago. It used to be considered one of the best high schools in the whole Chicago area. Now, even with flashes of brilliance with the speech and drama teams continuing to place high in state competition, and impressive AP offerings, it's seen as an average school overall. The good thing is that the potential is still there for any student to have a fine secondary education if they want it. That makes it above average in my book.

My school is Oak Lawn Community. I love it. The teachers are excellent and my daughter chose this school over private schools in our area based on the programs they offer. Excellent honors and AP classes and a lot of opportunities outside the classroom for sports and activities. Wonderful drama program too. Encourage your student to get involved and participate in all the wonderful things this school has to offer. Sports program needs to focus on helping students obtain college scholarships.

Great school for academics. The Forensic/Speech/Drama program is State award winning. It is nice to have a school that doesn't only take athletics into consideration.

I love this school, 3 of my kids have graduated from here, all have gone on to college and feel they got a good foundation at OLCHS. Lots of activities and sports, just a nice friendly school.
