Community Unit School District No. 300 Reviews

It has wonderful academic programs and great faculty. I feel that the district prepares students well if the student choose to put in effort in their own learning. The one thing I would like to see a change in is later school start times because I believe students will be happier, more focused on what they are learning, and their behavior issues within the schools may go down because the students have more sleep.

Plenty and a wide range of classes, organizations, and sports available for students to partake. Many opportunities for parents to get involved throughout the year. Teachers and faculty staff come and go but have been very professional and friendly for the most part. Sometimes classes seem easy as teachers are very understanding. This is a plus for students but does not always prepare them for education beyond high school.
I liked that our superintendent cared about the children, parents, and staff in our district. He listened to what we have to say and tries his best to accommodate everyone. I have only gone to three schools in district 300 and one thing that I would like to see be changed is an open campus for high schoolers or at least upperclassman because as a student I would be able to learn better if I could get outside every once in awhile.
