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!

I have been a student for my entire school experience from K-12th grade at District 300 schools. I feel our schools are safe, provide a good learning environment with small class sizes, and have many opportunities for us to be involved in clubs and sports.
I do not feel the food is overall fantastic, but there are healthy options for us, and to help curve our childhood obesity concerns.
I would like for each high school to be treated the same, and for no favorites to be chosen. Schools are deprived of equal opportunities due to the bias choosing of the administration, and the limited fun that the administration is taking care of. Kids can barely enjoy games and some schools are allowed to have more freedom than others, which is not fair.
