All multiple of my children attended Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, IL.
My husband and I also graduated from Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, ILâ€¦ The school has been open since the 1950sâ€¦ Before the part was a school, the locale was surrounded by cornfields, Forest land, and a lake.
The school board chose the name of the school after the poet Carl Sandburg; It is one of the only public high schools in Orland Park. The high school does legitimately well in sports and academics! All multiple of my children played Sports in high school. The last child graduated a couple of years ago. Mary was on the volleyball and the basketball team, however during one of the last basketball games of the year, my husband and I had to sit through one of the coldest indoor matches. It was the end of the season and close to choosing teams for the district finals. There was no heat in the gym, but both teams chose to play the basketball game. Most of the people cheering for the teams were bundled up because of the lack of heat. The game was extremely close and I didn’t want to leave for a moment. My husband went outside to the car a couple of times so he could boiling up with the oil furnace running. At the end of the game, Orland Park out-scored the visiting team and went on to play in the district finals game. Both of us didn’t have to worry about the heat at that game, because it was held at the nearby school gymnasium.
