    It's very innovative and provides not only a great education but a safe and secure facility for the kids

    I've been at this school for two years now and it is terrible. The teachers are very biased and always feel bad for bad children. The disipline is also horrible because I was severely ridiculed and nothing ever happened. Please don't send your child here.

    This school is amazing. I'm in 7th grade and I'm heading to Marist for high School but this school has 3 levels everything is top-quality and I know that I'm going to miss everything about it so much. the cafetria has a line its supposed to be like a buffet and the food is soooo good! The cafeteria is bigger then my highschools.

    I graduated in june 2007 and i loved the school. I met so many people that i still talk to. The teachers were amazing and so were the sports. Great coaches terachers staff and the enviroment was great. My brother goes there and he loves it as well. Now i go to richards and olhms was way better than high school. If i could i would go backin a heart beat!

    I think this is a really good school the principal and teachers are really concerned bout the students passing transfering my son from a chicago public school into this school district was the best choice as a parent I could have made

    This school has the most qualified teachers and aides in the State of Illinois. Both academically and in their sincere wishes to be of help to students in their hour of need. Student-teacher inactions are of the utmost importance to all the faculty and administative personel. The majority of the teaching staff have earned their Master Degrees and the remainder which consist of young people just starting out in the teaching profession are now enroll in course leading to their Master. To sum it all up; students' learning health security and learning to relate to their surroundings as they progress in life are the very foundations upon with Oak Lawn Hometown Middle School is founded upon.

    This school barely taught me any much at all. I would of rather stayed at my elemantary school than go here. I feel that it is not run well and they make the students feel like pre-schoolers. I hated it very much.

    I was in the 2003 graduating class and I had a blast. There was so much planned for us and the teachers really did a good job making us feel welcome and comfortable. I would not have changed my expirence.

    I was a student of the 2004 Graduating Class. All of the staff members made the students feel welcome and they would always try there hardest to help students understand difficult topics.
