Sycamore High School is a very dedicated school. It dedicates all of it's time towards getting students involved in it's many extracurricular activities, preparing students for college and making sure that each student does not feel left behind. Though every school has it's bad eggs, I am proud to call myself a Sycamore Spartan!
Review Sycamore Community Unit School District No. 427
Sycamore School District No. 427 was an absolutely amazing district to be a part of. We were all a family and we were all treated fairly. One thing that stood out to me about the district was the push for all students to belong to sports, clubs, and honor classes. Each and every teacher pushed us to be our best and to get involved. I started out at West Elementary School, then I went to the Middle School and High School. only remember positive experiences with teachers and administrators, even at a young age. Living in such a small town, having a tight school district that implants rules and safety while also giving their students an amazing experience is vital to the well being of all children and teens involved. If I could go back and start it all over, I would.
I highly recommend the Sycamore School District Schools to others looking to educate their children. Not only did these schools teach students valuable information, but they also taught students valuable life lessons that you don't typically learn in a classroom setting. With that being said, growing up in the Sycamore School Distract really influenced my life and the lives of many who are looking to further their education in a collegiate setting.
