Sycamore Community School District Reviews
Good academics overall, administration is not the best and sometimes lacked a connection with students. There are lots of different opportunities for students from all spectrums to get involved, and there are means to start clubs for those not yet represented. There are also lots of ways to prepare yourself for college; First, the structure of classes are often difficult (especially when taking AP and advanced courses), so they [over]prepare you for the intensity of college which helped transitioning after graduation. Second, an area they could improve upon is making College Credit Plus/Dual enrollment/other ways to take or get credit for college courses more readily known among the entire school population, as i feel they only focused on relaying this information AP and advanced students when it was available to all kinds.
During my years at Sycamore High School, I really enjoyed the art classes such as, ceramics (my favorite) and photography. It really gives students a chance to express themselves in a different form. I also really enjoyed most of my teachers and school counselor. They really impacted my life and made my high school experience better. What I would like to see change would be a different approach with some discipline issues and the way the administration treats students. I would hope to see more respect come from the adults who work at the school.
I've been in Sycamore schools from Kindergarten to Senior year. It has pushed me to take classes I never thought I would that resulted in finding new passions and so many friendships. High school is especially tough but I feel like it has prepared me very well for college in the workload/level of rigor. However I would love to see more classes that match up/help prep you for some college majors. For example, I plan to major in Pre-vet medicine so if there was an elective I could've taken that focuses on animal anatomy/care I think it would be extremely beneficial. But overall, I will miss Sycamore schools very much once I graduate.
