I have had a lot of great experiences going to school in D303. I went to grade school at Wild Rose which was the last elementary school in the district to participate in an outdoor education trip to Camp Timber-lee in East Troy, WI. We got to sleep in bunkhouses, go on nature walks, learn about leathercraft and look for fossils. I was lucky enough to be able to go in 4th, 5th and 6th grade. What great adventures! I have many friends who go to other schools in the district who were sad that they didn't have the same opportunity to experience Camp Timber-lee. In high school, after swim season Freshman year, some of my teammates convinced me to try water polo in the off-season. Not all schools/towns have high school and/or club water polo. St. Charles has both. In water polo, I found a sport that I love and excel at. If I had grown up somewhere else, I may not have found water polo. I had a great education and am headed to ASU in the fall to study Biomedical Engineering.

The education provided by this community is incredibly helpful when it comes preparing students for their future. Aid is limitless for all kids attending the districts schools; counselors who stay with you from freshman year to senior year, and teachers who actually care for their students. As child I would resist my homework as most kids do; however, my teachers would not allow that to occur so easily. Meanings with my parents and my instructors assisted greatly on setting me on the proper path to excellence. Students can start branching out even in middle school with classes ranging from multiple PLTW programs to a cooking and sewing class. Having spent the entirety of my educational career in this district and being whiteness to others I can say that this was an incredibly prevalent aid to getting myself set on the path to a good future.
My experience here has been great! All my life I've been surrounded by not only teachers who knew how to teach well, but also cared about each of their students' wellbeings, as well as a variety of resources used to help us learn (ie: iPads, textbooks, workbooks, chromebooks, and more!).
