Plainfield School District No. 202 Reviews

I loved how helpful and friendly everyone was at Plainfield Central High School. Most of the teachers would do everything to help their students achieve their goals and help them succeed. There is some teachers that are just unbearable and hated by most students but luckily, there isn’t a big number of them. One thing that I did not enjoy throughout my high school experience was that so many smaller extra-curriculars were overshadowed by bigger ones. So many small clubs and sports went unnoticed no matter how big their win was. The school spent money to build an amazing football field for a team who can barely score a touchdown every season while so many other clubs and teams do not have proper funding and have to constantly fundraise.

The teachers are incredibly nice they notice when you’re struggling and help you. They give you a bunch of chances to get your grade up, they also get on you when you’re grade is getting low. They protect and love their students with all their heart!
I have been in the Plainfield school district since kindergarten! Throughout the years I have gained so much knowledge about so many aspects of life. District 202 has given me so many opportunities to grow and prosper as a learner and as a person. All of my teachers have challenged to step outside of my comfort zone and the challenges they put forth have made me the person I am today. As I leave the Plainfield school district after this year I will take with me everything that I have learned and make my teachers proud just as I am proud to be a student in district 202.
