My son graduated from Niles West last year. The academics are excellent and the extracurricular activities superb. I found the counseling office to be very helpful in assisting me with my son's academics. I have nothing but good things to say about this school.

After Freshman year, I transferred to Niles West from Northside College Prep. Even though Northside is supposed to be a challenging school, I found the honors classes at West to be even more challenging. I love this school. It offers the best education and a good challenge to academic kids; however, not so academic kids can enjoy the school too. It has a lot of extra curricular activities, and the facility is amazing.

We have one of the most diverse student body in America. We also have very high standard classes, and one of the best sport teams. We also have a variety of clubs to choose from.

I think NW is a great school. Parent involvement, many activities for kids, great teachers. I have had 2 children so far in NW and look forward to my last one getting there.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a public high school could give my child such a challenging, creative and academically superior (just read the state report cards) experience. Counselors care, teachers give ONE-ON-ONE, INDIVIDUAL CARE! Too many actitivies and sports and activites to mention here. The very best public school in Illinois, without a doubt!
