    I honestly HATE this school. This school is full of whores. The kids there are horrible they are just no. The only thing that is good about this school are the teachers. The teachers are phenominal.But the student teaching is way too easy. I knew all of the stuff before we even learned it. I went to Churchill for sixth grade and knew just about everything before we learned it. I went to this school for 2 months and hated it. I was transferred back to Churchill. So I am now attending Churchill Jr. High. Yes I had a few friends there I even made a few new friends that I didnt even want. Anf this may soumd crazy but even though i hated this school I will admit that I do sometimes miss it there but not as much as I hated it there.

    I think Lombard Junior High is a great school. All the faculty staff has provided my Son with excellant individual attention to provide proper direction in what he needs to be a success in 7th grade. That has helped in tremendously and he knows the teachers care about him and his education.

    My son is currently a student at this school unfortunately. There have been several physical attacks on my son and very little consequences for the kids involved. In a matter of a few months my child went from looking forward to school to having panic attacks and severe anxiety about going every single day. This school is not located in a very safe neighborhood and the environment inside the school is not any better. I would not recommend this school to anyone. We are moving to another district for this very reason.

    Academic programs are great. They keep the students involved. Not enough extracurricular activities though.

    This school has wonderful teachers and a complete staff that really cares about the students. They are given a loving environment. Best Jr. High in the area.
