Seriously, this school is the worst school I have ever attended! They make the most stupidest rules I think I have heard of in my life ! They took are WIFI away because one "students" said "we need more time doing work instead" *cough cough the school is cheaper than a dollar bill store * they work us to death at this school I have homework like everyday I am practically an insomniac! Not to mention every single week to go to this school you have to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to go. This school acts like its all high an mighty and so amazing HA! what a joke this school also uses common core if you don't know what common core seriously is will make your child fail even if he or she is very smart transferring or transitioning into this school! Its trying to solve some of the hardest problems in the world I am NOT even kidding! Plus the dress code sucks 90 degrees out and you have to practically wear a sweater and long pants because they will give you a referral or a detention or give you an ugly disgusting T- shirt to wear if they deem it "inappropriate". I hate this school I am so glad I will be getting out of here in a few years! When first coming to this school I thought it was going to be amazing and a new start and the best teachers ,but turns out its just another school district getting funding from the tax payers from the surrounding area to keep this school alive! I will NEVER recommend this school to anyone EVER!

I was a student at A A stagg high school, but I did not graduated from stagg. Stagg was the best high school I ever attended. Everyone was good at stagg teachers, counselors, and staff. What I liked the most at stagg is that counselors are very good!! They really care about their students and they encourage them to what the want to study in future.

AA Stagg has a very talented mix of teachers who are completely dedicated to this cross section of the true ethnicity of the urban areas of our great country. As a community leader in this middle class district I applaud them for the true to life knowledge the administration and professional staff educate these kids every day.

Amos Alonzo Stagg high school is a good place for 9th to 12th graders that want to balance a steady education and still have plenty of time and occasions to be social. Stagg has fantastic teachers. For the most part, the staff is extremely devoted to the child's education, what ever that specific child needs to have the best learning experience... that is what they will make happen. As far as social activities and making friends go... there is basically a club for literally everyone. It is easy to meet new people with a low stress level because there is always someone here. The list of concerns of the school (in my opinion) is much smaller then the list of compliments.

My son and daughter both attend Stagg, my daughter transferred from Hinsdale South which is outstanding to be with her brother at Stagg......Stagg has exceeded my expectations....they offered her the same classes mid term of her senior year that she had at Hinsdale and the two high schools worked well together in makig sure her transition was smooth and effortless....Hinsdale South deserves its 10 of 10 ranking but they also are one of the wealthiest districts in the State of Illinois.....when money goest to fund a good education making sure the staff is trained to accommodate the learning needs of all children you have this result. Unfortunately, our country is not all on the same page in this regard.

The teachers and staff of Amos Alonzo Stagg show that they care about my childrens' education as much as i do. I was very impressed at the eagerness they have for the students too get involved in extracurricular activities. My children that attend Stagg always speak of how much they like it there, and how they will miss it when they graduate.

School dress code and inappropriate behaviors expecially in the hallways should be taken into consideration. Poor disciplin causes poor education.

I am a parent of one graduating student and two other students who will be graduating in 2006. I was somewhat disappointed with lack of preparation regarding life skills with respect to my eldest child. The school does have some dedicated teachers as well as those who are racist. But, that exists in all diverse schools. I would like to see more challenging assignments and higher thinking skills offered to students.

I went to Stagg and graduated in 2002. I feel that in some areas Stagg very much prepared me for college, and in others it dreadfully failed. Overall, it is alright, but I think there are a lot of things that could be improved. For one thing I think most of the student responses on here about the school are very short sighted. I never had anything but problems with the majority of counselors at Stagg. Most of the time they were just lazy or unwilling to help. Also, it is clear that the student responses on here make me wonder too, when they mispell numerous, rather easy words. I am a senior at U of I now and thought my experience at Stagg was a positive one, but in my opinion the school has gone somewhat downhill since then.

Although not a parent also, I think that Stagg is a wonderful enviorment. As a Sophomore, I think that the school has provided me with the best education possible. I am enrolled in classes that fit my needs and counciller's see that every student gets the same. My experience has been amazing. A past comment has said that the school is on a watch list, that is because of the amazing special services program. These students who are mentally and physically inable to take tests are given the same test as a student in all AP and Honors Courses. I believe that the poor test scores show nothing about the school as a whole.

Although not a parent, I attend Stagg as a senior. Throughout my four years, I have been priviledged enough to enjoy the company of my wonderful class and equally fabulous teachers. The education I have recieved is astounding; as an honors student, I spend a majority of my day studying many subjects, from Advanced European History to Mythology to Astronomy. The teachers are inquisive and probing; they know how to ask the right questions so that the students may find the answers within themselves. I'm a member of the Varsity Badminton Team (yes, it IS a sport) and many of my other friends are in band, Color Guard, Scholastic Bowl, Tennis, Drama Club. Stagg is amazing. I feel safe in school and I know that I've been well prepared for college. On a side note, our principal is a fascinating man. He taught at a school in the Congo...in French!

I am acutally a student but i find that Stagg is a wonderful enviornment for me. All of their extracurricular programmes are very well established, as well as their acidemic standards. We have no 'rivalry' fighting or whatnot.
