Elmhurst School District No. 205 Reviews

I would like to tell the elmhurst school teachers that they need to better prepair us for college. In most classes teachers stull require bathroom passes, and the inability to walk the halls without a pass. I also feel that the teachers don't take into consideration other classes. I also believe that students need to have the ability to get to know the students on a better level. The relationship between students and teachers gets better the longer that you are at school, but the relationship struggles the first two years I would say. One other thing that is very frustrating as a student athlete is how teachers tend to make more of an effoet to attend the boys sporting events, talk about them in class, and make an effort to show support to them . While for womens athletics there are very few teachers that make an effort to come out and support at tournaments and away games while women never get a "fan" section.

Great innovative programming. The District just passed a $168.5M referendum and will build two new schools. The addition of the Business Incubator program, Blended Learning, Project Lead the Way, Dual Language, and All Day Kindergarten has the town rocking. This District is progressive and looking to the future.
I have attended schools in District 205 for all of my years of education, in which I have always found belonging and a strong sense of community. I truly could not be happier with my experience, as I know I am more fortunate than most. I have had numerous caring teachers, close friends, and have consistently felt included with our tight-knit campus. There are always new opportunities, ways to meet people, and to become more involved with our schools. Being involved, even though it becomes time consuming, is completely worthwhile, as it has only strengthened my positive feelings for District 205, making me extremely grateful for the experience I have had. In the future, I hope to find an environment with as many resources and passionate people to help me continue my journey.
