Indian Prairie Community Unit School District No. 204 Reviews

Let me start by saying that, after belonging to it for the past 7 years of my life, that the IPSD is an outstanding school district. For the most part it shows how much it cares about it's students through its generous spending in after-school activities and its sincerely amazing educational programs. The only reason I do not give it a 5 is because I can see some room for improvement. The biggest place where I can see the district improving is in what classes it offers to the students. While the math department does offer various different classes for students of different skill levels, most others do not; its biggest perpetrator being English who only offers the highest difficulty class or one that arguably offers no challenge. I am aware that I am nitpicking at a great School District, but I sincerely believe that it can improve, that it can make the quality of life for the students even better.

Most teachers are great and care about their students and their education. Staff always tries to find new ways to improve students grades and give them the help they need. This year they implemented a program that allowed us to have a 30 minute free period where all teachers would be available for all students. After school programs and sports area all of high quality and school events are usually always something to look forward too (except for the pep assemblies and the way those are handled. There's never enough room for all the students and the whole thing is terribly boring). Overall, I've enjoyed my experience.
IPSD provides a high-quality education for the students. They provide many different opportunities for learning. There are programs for high achieving students and lower achieving students. The district has an excellent program for special needs students. At the high school level, they offer many AP classes for the students to take part in. The teachers have regular office hours when they can meet with students for extra help. The schools offer many different extracurricular activities for the students to get involved in. Indian Prairie School district is consistently ranked one of the best school districts in the state of Illinois.
