Overall the Champaign Community Unit School District No. 4 created an acceptable path for my education. I started at Barkstall Elementary and received challenging education that gave me opportunities to take challenging classes in middle school. I attended Franklin Middle School where the education I received was sub par. The middle school had many passionate teachers, but I had several teachers that did not teach me at the level of education that would have bettered me in High School. I currently attend Champaign Central High School as a Senior, and I have been impressed with the attentive teachers and staff. Central has very strong foreign language and English fields. Most teachers are passionate and motiated to help students learn. Overall the Schools I attended in the Champaign Community Unit School District No. 4 have successfully prepared me for my college education.

I’ve been in Champaign unit 4 my whole life. I’d say it’s okay. Elementary school and middle school weren’t the best. Centennial was probably the worst, teachers didn’t really seem to care there at all. After school programs were also hard to attend because I worked as well. But I also attended Novak Academy, which a pretty wonderful school. I loved it there. Teachers are helpful and fun, they help you with anything, not just school, a lot of them had genuine concern for my life outside of school too. I went from being behind at centennial, to graduating early at Novak Academy.
The teachers at the High School are not only teaching the subject matter, but teaching the student's how to study in different ways, preparing them for college. I am impressed with their dedication to the students!
