Indian Prairie Community Unit School District No. 204 Reviews

All Categories
Throughout my schooling years at the Indian Prairie District (High School only), Neuqua Valley was a typical learning experience and environment, nothing great, nothing terrible. I've also seen the elementary and Middle schools because of my siblings. The schools are clean and my brothers come home with brains full of knowledge. I think District 204's schools are above average, however I'd like to see more involvement in the artistic and technological side of the schools programs. Since I was involved in art, I found the schools money more focused on sports, building new tracks and basketball courts when some of that money should be spent on new computers or better supplies for art and film students. High schools are support to prepare you for college, right?
Review Indian Prairie Community Unit School District No. 204
Indian Prairie School District 204 is a very diverse community that fosters education from an early age through its Project Arrow programs. Moving from a school district outside of Illinois without these opportunities for advanced learning makes me appreciate the steps this district has taken to encourage higher level education among its brightest students. However, there are always improvements that can be made. The district has recently proposed that middle school students are not required to participate in the Illinois Junior Academy of Science Science Fairs, which, to me, were an extremely important and helpful part of my IPSD education during 7th and 8th grade.
I feel exceptionally blessed to be a part of the Indian Prairie School District (IPSD) system, as it offers outstanding academic resources that prepare each student for success at the next level. IPSD is very fortunate in the funds that they have, and because of this, they are able to offer programs many schools go without. Course offerings like Computer Science, AP Studio Art, and American Sign Language are unique classes that allow students to expand their horizons. Growing up in the IPSD school system has been a blessing because of the extraordinary teaching and educational resources at my disposal throughout my twelve years as a student. There is always room for improvement in any company or organization, and although this remains true for IPSD, I cannot ignore the special opportunities available to me through this district that many students go without.
