South Elgin High School Reviews
I would not recommend this school. They can't keep control of their students, there are constant fights, fire alarm pullings, and vandalism.. They try hard, but it just doesn't work. It gets worse each year. I pulled my student out.
One of the greatest schools ever! I love it here. Education is excellent and the sports are so great. We have so much school spirit, and I actually look forward to school. The teachers are so nice and understanding, also because most of them are very young. There's alot of cool clubs to join and it's just an amazing school. GO STORM!
