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.

Overall, Elmhurst School District 205 is very well organized, and has great parents and people that try to make Elmhurst a better and thriving community. The district is very involved in all the schools and has a great group of members helping. They allow great changes be made and create many positive opportunities for all the students in District 205. One thing I can say is that communication is one essential aspect that District 205 can work on in order to better it's service and participation within the community. More flyers, announcements, and emails about events, would be a great way to "fix" or improve this problem.
I did observations here I can say these schools have great college readiness programs,and great teachers that are compassionate to their students and the community. Pertaining to college readiness, programs for ACT prep are accessible to students through the public library, private tutoring centers, and course at the high school. The teachers in this district have outstanding enthusiasm that helps the children learn and be engaged with the common core.
