I really enjoyed my journey through district 204, from the amazing staff that I will never forget to the adaptations they would make personalized to help everyone succeed. I feel more than prepared for college and it was all because of district 204 pushing me to limits that I didn't know I was capable of and I will forever be thankful for that!
As a highschooler in District 204 is an amazing district. It has incredible teachers and staff. With excellent funding and extracurricular students can easily thrive in the environment. However, one thing that I wish could change is the mental health stigma surrounding our students. Many of my classmates have mental health issues and would like someone to talk to except for the fact that our class size in all highschools, NVHS, WVHS, and MVHS, is massive. And having one social worker per class isn't enough. Yes, there are guidance counselors but they clearly aren't enough and don't know how to deal with problems at home as well as the social workers do. They help more for college and helping you with the future but they don't help you as much as with getting you to the future. Therefore I believe as a student that all of the high schools in the Indian Prairie Community Unit School District No. 204 should have more than one social worker per class/grade level.
