I have been in the district from kindergarten to senior year of high school. Even though Elmhurst College is not a part of District 205, I attend the college in the area (soon to be university on June 2020. I've had great experience all though-out the twelve years and I made so many wonderful memories that I look back to. The teachers are helpful and caring in this district! I have always felt safe here because it is such a welcoming community.

The school provided all sorts of resources no matter your financial standing or skin color. These resources included college preparedness like AP coursework, school lunch, extracurriculars like sports and clubs, and other things!
Although I loved everything that the school offers, I do feel that it lacks in diversity, and I feel that it is over-protective on the internet. Many websites are blocked, even if they have educational purposes. For example, a website published by Ohio State on their admissions page was blocked along with several other pages. Additionally, regarding the diversity, it is predominantly caucasian throughout all of the districts.
