Illinois Valley Central School District No. 321 Reviews

This school district provides numerous experiences for it's students despite it's significantly smaller size. The teachers and faculty genuinely care and make the learning experience enjoyable and relatable for students. If one thing could be improved, I would encourage the school district to provide opportunities for it's students to branch out and experience more realistic and worldly things while they are still in high school.

I really enjoyed my time learning at IVC. The school was filled with teachers and staff that really cared about the students attending. The only thing that I really do not like about the school is something that they could not help. It is the fact that the extracurricular activities were not funded by the school. If the community was not as supportive as it is then the school's extracurricular activities would not be able to remain. The teachers and staff did however support these activities such as the sports, band, and choir programs. Even though this school did not have the most money that did not diminish the great education that I received from this facility.
IVC was an interesting school to attend. The faculty was nice and tried to help make sure their students succeed it whatever career path they had picked. Illinois Valley Central had a great sports atmosphere. I loved taking part in the extra curricular activities that were provided. The students all had their differences but when times got tough, our school united as one to help each other heal, grow, and become greater people. IVC has little funding yet still gives out scholarships as best as they can. Although IVC had its not so great moments the faculty does the best they can to make every day a great day to be a ghost.
