St. Charles Community Unit School District No. 303 Reviews

19 reviews
All Categories
District 303 is an affluent district, and provides a generally excellent education to its students. Like any school district, however, some students are academically gifted and some are not. D303 provides Honors and AP opportunities for the college bound. Teachers are very good, and I've had about 5 that have inspired me to become a teacher myself! The high schools offer a WIDE variety of clubs for anyone to get involved in. School culture varies widely depending on the high school. St. Charles East is more culturally diverse, whereas St. Charles North is more homogenously white. East has an older facility and North is newer. North focuses more on academics and East focuses on sports. That being said, I am a student of St. Charles East, which is currently undefeated in football!

St. Charles d303 is great! It has many opportunities to get involved with both the school and community. There are opportunities such as playing sports, community service, joining clubs, and if they don't have a club, you can create one. It is a safe environment for learning, with great teachers who are willing to help students towards their goals. St Charles encourages caring, life long learners.
St. Charles North High School is my personal experience with this school district. However, I was able to visits schools of all grades levels as well as the other high school. While this district like to promote academics and how important they are, they also do a good job at making sure the students are aware of this. But, the amount of stress the district puts on the students can be extremely overwhelming and has led to many students being mentally exhausted & experience feelings like depression & suicide. The diversity is very low in certain parts of this district causing minorities to not feel comfortable or underappreciated while racism is still present. Therefore, the district has done well in providing the right faculty to keep things running well but there are some overall issues that they need to pay more attention to when it comes to the students.
