Amundsen High School Reviews

By a Current Student on

A little bit of everything; struggles, achievements. In the end, it is the place where I've grown the most as a person and intellectually..

Amundsen High is not the best, it's not the worst. In the end, it's how you take advantage of the education. Being in the IB motivated me to go to college and be the best that I can be.

By a Parent on

I think Amundsen is a very good school.  School is what students make it.  Very few students that attend classes and join extra-curricular activities and don't hang outside the building normally don't have any problems at Amundsen.

I had several children, grand-children, and friend's children who attend Amundsen and they enjoyed going to school and graduated and are now working or in College.

Amundsen has some of the best educators I have ever met.

By a Current Student on

I attended Amundsen High School. The only reason I graduated high school and am currently writing this review from my college dorm room is because my parents yanked me out halfway through junior year and put me in school outside the city. Amundsen has drugs, alcohol, gangs, and violence. It's bad.
