Has anyone had any experience with the lab schools? anyone know what the average starting pay is? students? I know it's in a undesirable part of chicago but are the students pretty good?
I'm not from Chicago but was doing some biography research a few months ago and that's when I first heard of the place. Friends who live in chicago told me it's considered a pretty top notch school.It is affiliated with the University of Chicago, and about half the students have a parent who is an employee of the university (and thereby receive a discount off the full tuition, normally as much as $20,000 per year).
It is among the top five feeder institutions in the nation for elite colleges according to the Wall Street Journal. The student body is about 60% white and contains over 44 nationalities.
The school has over 1,700 students currently enrolled, though there are plans to increase the size. Ninety-nine percent of each graduating class enrolls in a four-year college or university
