    Robert Abbott Middle school is like a prison. We are treated like inmates in that school. In the cafeteria we are barely allowed to talk and we have to sit in the same spots or we are sent to "the wall". We get in trouble for almost anything. A student was suspended just for having a deck of cards! Elementary schools and the high school allow cards but not Abbott! They are quick to assume that you have problems at home or in your personal life and one of the counselors labels us right away as "depressed" or any other term. There are constant fights and the education is very poor. There are some good teachers that actually do their jobs but most don't know how to do their job right. This is a problem not only in this school but in others in Waukegan. I do not look forward to any more years at that school! It is the worst school I have ever experienced in my life!

    I just graduated from abbott not too long ago & i loved it ! Ive been to two other schools but this was the best one ! The teachers there really do care about their students & try their best to educate them . They are teachers you can trust & care a lot . They are always there when a stundent needs help with anything at all whether it be school related or non-school related . They are very supportive . Epecially Mr. Tylkowski & Mrs. Thoren . They are awesome & very funny ! I miss the school very much )

    Great School! Everyone was a participant and the teachers were always there to help the students when they were in need. This school affected my three children's learning ability significantly.
