The school has no AP or honor courses. They do not weigh classes. Students who take the easiest classes possible can be valedictorian. A small amount of the teachers actually care about the students and education. Teachers at Oblong High mostly advocate mindless memorization. In all of my days at oblong I only sat through one class where I was actually told to think. The same teacher left the next year for a better job. This is a great day-care in which after graduation the students join the uneducated mass called America.

For a small town school it was not bad. However, students that were born and raise there were always treated better than those of us who moved in. I had some very good teachers, but I also had some very bad ones. There was no real guidance to speak of, my options were very limited. If I could go back in time, I would beg my parents not to move there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
