Naperville Community Unit School District No. 203 Reviews

I think the schools are wonderful, and overall, I know many people who are extremely satisfied. However, as a student who transferred from Naperville Central to Naperville North for sophomore year, I saw some sides of the administration that were not as supportive or understanding as expected. I was told to go see person after person until finally I figured out how to start the transfer process on my own. It took me from October of 2016 to May of 2017 to get the transfer approved, despite the fact that I had gone to my counselor near the beginning of the year to tell her I was miserable. I love being at Naperville North, and the district as a whole is wonderful, I just wish that there had been a little more understanding and support for people like me who were really struggling.

NCUSD 203 was a great school district that gave every student the opportunity to be successful. There were countless teachers that were passionate about their job, and cared for the students. There were also tons of extracurriculars, and special school events that conjured school spirit. These points are on top of a class schedule that is adjusted to each individual student, to help them perform as efficiently as possible.

Some things I would like to see change are the way some students are treated by the school, some teachers, and other classmates. A handful of teachers acted a bit obnoxious and rude, which is unnecessary. Sometimes, the school makes bad judgement calls that are for their own interest, and not the students. Finally, many students are struggling with bullying and drug abuse, and I feel that more needs to be done to help these students.
The education and services provided by District 203 is truly phenomenal. The administration is willing to help students with any problems they have in both their academic and personal lives. There are all kinds of clubs for every type of special interest a student may have. Overall, District 203 is a fantastic school district filled with all sorts of opportunities students can take advantage of in order to thrive.
