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!

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.
It was not as fun as I thought it would have been, nor do I feel at all prepared for real life. There are very few teachers that will actually go off of their strict academic curriculum and teach what students NEED to learn. We can figure out 1+1=2 through Google, but teach us what we can't be taught through the internet. I understand that we all need to be taught what is needed to get into college, but what happens after we are in college? A lot will fail if this does not change. To the teachers go above and beyond what they are "supposed" to do I am forever thankful. . The students are the future, why are you trying to dim their creativeness and imagination. We are not meant to think the same as one another. Admin. should be worried about how the school is functioning, if students enjoy their surroundings, and less about if a student's shoulder is distracting. The priorities of this school district need to be reevaluated.
