Personally, I have been in district 150 for most of my grade school and high school education. Though it is not for everyone school is what you make of it. If you put forth a great effort, are respectful, and genuinely try you will do fine. I have moved around a lot and if you are worried about making friends let me assure you-you will. There is a big push for diversity in District 150 RHS in particular! with a multitude of clubs and sports and a lot of student involvement there is something for everyone!

I moved from Spokane, WA my senior year of high school to Peoria, IL; frankly the school isn’t welcoming at all. The band, orchestra, and choir are below average(I did band all 4yrs of high school) compared to average schools. The food was by far one of the worse aspects of the school. They serve the same five things all year long and use the pitiful excuse of if you don’t like one thing try one of our other four things. Which are nachos, pizza, subs, burgers and chicken sandwiches. All the food is prison quality food as well. The pizza taste like stale cardboard and the subs are mediocre at best. I bring this up because the school doesn’t have an open campus; only teachers and administrators can get food. So if you want a decent lunch but have nothing at home, well I guess you’re not eating. Next is the buy out assembly’s, yes you heard that right. Where for 90% of the assembly’s for the year you need to pay money to go to them.
I enjoyed the high school I attended however, I was not prepared for college. We were always taught to pass the state testing which in the long run has put us behind. The teachers were not allowed to let the students fail. The classes were made easier so that the graduation rates would increase. I feel that the Education system at this District needs to be fixed. The teachers are really great if they would be allowed to teach the way they know how to teach. They are passionate and really do care about all of their students.
