I put my child in this school on recommendation of his fifth grade teacher. It was the worst mistake i have ever made. The principal and magnet coordinator changed the summer before school started. I really don't think i have ever encountered more incompetent and useless administrators. They were defensive did not return phone calls ignored messages did not want to meet in person and had absolutely zero sympathy about bullying and the general chaos at this school. Ignore the good reviews some people post... they have never seen a well run school. Don't just walk away from this school...run. Seriously.

I feel the need to write a review because of all the negative reviews. My child has excelled in the magnet program. Dr. Peterson is a godsend to this school she has zero tolerance for bad behavior and foresters a positive learning environment.
Magnet program is great ! My daughter is learning so much w/ her Math teacher . Doing French and she is loving this school . Great magnet programs .
I am not getting detailed but I removed my child from this school. My younger child will not be enrolled when it is her time for middle school.
6th grade is going digital in 2014-2015. We are looking forward to new laptops in class.
I taught at Crystal Lake and it was a great school. This was 1980-2000. Magnet programs science fair and I was basketball coach that had a undefeated year and we won the Browsed County champioship. Some of the men went on to have great college and pro ball success.
This school is soo bad the kids are terrible the administrators need to be fired especially Dr. Peterson she yells at students and doesn't care where they end up ! This school is a C school on it's way down to a D school DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE THIS IS A CAUTION ! Please dont i cant wait to go to a new school because this school is ridiculous ! Some teachers are good but some are short tempered and cure one of the security gaurds beat up a kid that could become your child ! DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL !!!!!!!!
This is a very good school I have all advanced classes and the teachers are very nice and classy. Ms.Payne Ms.Bustamante and Mr.Simay are the best teachers there ) love this school! 8th grade-
Great school! This is my son's first year and he is loving it. The teachers are wonderfull and the staff are very kind and helpfull. Everything is in complete order. And this is really a "zero bullying tolerance" school.
A good magnet program in Language but a very good one in science and engineering where my son attended. A GEM math program which enables the student to excel in Advanged Algebra and Geometry with excellent instructors in both science and math. This was not possible at private school previously attended. If a student is focused and has strong parental or guidance forces he or she can make friends and do well in any school no matter its boundries and or student population.
Excellent Teachers great Staff.
well.... i am a student here and i have to say that it is very social but has a very good education. i am in the spanish program and it isnt segregated from the publi. Sure there are fights but can you name a school that doesnt. very good school and very good education. )

This school is out of control. Kids do whatever they want.Very Disappointing!!
I go to CLMS and this is my first year there i really like it alot I am in regular classes and the teacher's there are very nice i recomend all kid's just getting out of elementary to go to this school. Over all the best 6th grade Math teacher there is Ms. Begley!!! Even though i will be going to a new school next year i will alway's represent CLIMS pride!! GO COUGAR's!!!!!!!
My daughter is very happy at Crystal Lake. She is in the Magnet program. The teachers are great and she is enjoying her year so far.
I went to Crystal Lake for the last 3 years even though it may seem tough I think it was great I was in the science pre engineering the teachers were awesome and taught everything step by step.
I went to CLMS for Middle School and it was by far the most involved and fulfilling period of my education thus far. I was in the Pre-Engineering magnet program and was a member of the robotic team SECME and the orchestra. Every program at this school is excellent and I would recommend it to any student who is curious and interested in science.
