I have lived in Wheaton my whole life and we are part of Community Unit School District 200. The school system is a great one. Elementary school was good, but I especially noticed the middle school being a great one (as I got older, I learned to recognize and appreciate it more). By the time I reached High School, it developed a love for school. My high school experience was a great one. The teachers are INCREDIBLE! They made learning fun and easy. The teachers really care and love doing what they do.

I've grown up my whole life in CUSD200. Throughout the course of my academic career, I've encountered countless thoughtful and dedicated teachers that have made me more and more excited to learn. CUSD200 is a very close-knit and warm community that I am proud to be a part of. If I could change anything, it would be more mental health resources available to youth as society continues to change. Especially in middle school, I feel it is more important than ever to come alongside each and every student to brighten their future.

My roots will always come back to CUSD200 and I am grateful for my time here.
District 200 is a great place for education and opportunity with great resources to help people struggling in classes, and magority of the teachers wanting to take the time to help you. Overall CUSD 200 is a great place for readying your kid for college life, but the food has to make me put the district at a four stars because every time I get a lunch at the school there is pizza, and about once a month I will see a salad. This just doesn’t add up and is very disappointing, but I believe CUSD 200 wants the best for the students in the district, and they will hopefully take the time to make my review into five stars next year!
