Review Elmhurst School District No. 205
My experiences with this district were quite frustrating. Overall, I found the school unhelpful and unorganized with regards to staff or assisting students who need help. However, there were also many positives. A wide variety of challenging classes were offered, giving students many opportunities to take classes that interest them. The district also takes in critique and suggestions from parents, students, community members, etc. making it a very involved district (actually following through is a different story though.) Safety was always a concern, and there have been major drug issues in (mostly) the high school, making for a poor environment. There have also been major issues with certain staff, more than just a "bad quiz grade" issue. There have been many times where teachers have wrongfully disrespected students or refused to answer legitimate questions, leaving kids in confusion and sometimes leaving them humiliated.
The administrators of district 205 pass the buck and expect to get paid a big salary; yet they choose to let go of great teachers . They don't want to pay them a competitive salary and they leave. They should reduce administrator salaries. Food is horrible at York - They believe pop tarts and hot pockets are healthy food. Let's give them processed hydrogenated chemicals chemicals instead. The staff's only focus are test scores, NOT about the quality of teachers. I'd say about half of the teachers actually teach. There are some really great teachers at York but there are some really bad ones too and the administration chooses not to do a thing about it. They've dropped the ball on so many things, I could go on and on. Yes they have great success at college readiness but the level of stress and pressure they put on the kids is ridiculous.
Elmhurst District No. 205 is a wholesome community in which is fosters a great learning environment for children just beginning school all the way through graduate school. It is a safe community that cares about the upcoming generations that will soon be making decisions of their own. Not only is the educational system wonderful, but the diversity is great as well and very welcoming to any minorities, as i have experienced it first hand being a first generation student myself. I have great respect for this community and the people that make it what it is.
