Wonderful School District!
I have been in this school district since kindergarten, and now I am a senior in high school. The academics, as well as the other school activities like clubs and sports, have been outstanding. The staff and school encourage us to learn more and do the best that we can. They also encourage us to participate in lots of school-related activities to build character, make friends, and create pleasant memories. I feel well prepared to go into college next year and I have thoroughly enjoyed my years here.

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.
St. Charles North provides an amazing community that prepares any student for their futures whether that be joining the work force right after high school or going to college. With amazing teachers, administrators, and support staff, St. Charles North creates an environment that will lead all students to success!
