District 300 really wants people to become involved in activities, sports, and events. They are improving every year to leave a legacy for recent graduates like me, and I'd love to see what they have in store! A great school district for your average family. Kid friendly and fun!

Overall my time in the District 300 community has given me many opportunities to grow as a student and athlete. I love how all of the schools strive for involvement in every student! The staff is always helpful in achieving my goals and I will be so happy I can say I graduated from D300 schools.
The Dundee-Crown High School advanced placement staff pushed me to think about the material presented in at a collegiate level. They treated their students as adults and held us accountable for our learning. The music staff helped me explore my passion for performing music while feeling a sense of community and belonging. D300 can help those in financial distress climb out of the hole that has been dug for them. The district seems to have a no fail system. It is a place that offers opportunity, but it is easy to get lost in the academic middle ground.
