Conant High school was a good place to attend for many reasons. First, being the teachers want you to succeed and are willing to help you get to where you need to be to do so. Second, they hall monitors are the nicest people to anyone they come into contact with. They create strong bonds with students and staff over the years they attend or work at Conant, they truly changed the experience for me! Lastly, the atmosphere at Conant is great! Students can do what they want at school for extracurricular activities at school, including sports, clubs, musicals, even intern with your favorite teachers! Overall, Conant is a great atmosphere for incoming students and returning students in the D211 school district area!

I absolutely loved being a student at Conant! The environment is very positive, and the staff is extremely friendly, caring, and encouraging. There are many resources at Conant – from free ipads, to free printing, to free tutoring, there’s everything you need in order to succeed!
Conant provides students with numerous opportunities to get involved, excel academically and prepare students for college. The teachers and staff are very encouraging and desire for their students to succeed. They push them to be in challenging classes, such as Advanced Placement courses and Dual Credit courses, to strive academically. I chose to take multiple Advanced Placement and Dual Credit courses which I believe have helped me prepare for college. Additionally, with the multiple clubs, sports and activities at Conant, there’s always something new you can try to get involved in. I played 1 sport and participated in 4 clubs, allowing me to develop good communication skills and time management. I hope to see more students become involved in activities and actively participate in clubs at Conant. Also, I believe the teachers should continue to stress the importance of rigorous courses, as they prepare you for your future, along with potential school credits when entering college.
