McLean County Unified School District No. 5 Reviews

I really like Unit 5 so far. It is a little poor though, but it spends it's money wisely. We have tons of programs and clubs that participate with state. . We are improving. We have advanced courses and are provided with AP level classes. This is highly helpful to our families. They also work with Heartland Community College to get the advanced students to save a few years of college. We have p.e everyday. This is because Unit 5 cares a lot about their student's health. Also, the food choices are healthy. ( and not that bad) The food could have been better. And I feel like Unit 5 should work on making their high schools more. better. Elementary should be able to do/ learn more. Because I when I was in elementary school, we always did what I already knew. We should all progress more and get more done in the less time we have. Only 13 years get the basic education we need to succeed in life! I am in 8th grade, and so far, Unit 5 is ok.

Being in high school now and as I take time to reflect back on my school life, my experience was incredible. I was presented with so many new opportunities and made amazing friends from all different backgrounds. The schools are very safe and bus rides back home are always a blast. The teachers are friendly and encouraging especially in high school. As I look back into the past, there will definitely be numerous amounts of memories to share. Thank you UNIT 5.
I went through Unit 5 K-12 and I had a very good experience overall. I had mostly very good teachers who helped me to the best of their ability and I enjoyed my time at Grove Elementary, Chiddix Jr. High, and Normal Community High School. As a sophomore in college I am very thankful for my high school because they provided me with a solid education that prepared me to attend college.
