There are many things I like about Sycamore High School. I enjoy that I can have honest conversations with my teachers and administration. I appreciate the support I have gotten during my time at Sycamore High School.

I also really enjoy my senior lounge time!

One thing I would change at Sycamore High School would be to offer more classes for students who struggle with academics. There are excellent tutoring opportunities and Spartan Stretch is helpful but more resources would also be great!

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!
District 427 had its up's and down's. Some of the teachers did an amazing job trying to get you prepared for your future in Middle School, High School, or College. While others made it feel as though it was just another job. The principles I had all really cared for the students and did try their best to get to know the students or help them out. For the most part the people were nice in the schools, and although not all the schools were the newest they did keep them clean and looking nice. Sycamore has been good to me and the district never really gave me anything to complain about.
