NOTE: Kanye West did not attend Shepard. West attended Polaris High School in Oak Lawn, Illinois, part of District 218, the same school district. He was considered a solid student with a strong sense of art… but not an Astro. Maybe if he attended Shepard, he might’ve been (even more) successful. 🙂 For more, see “The Many Faces of Kanye West
