Peotone High School brought many great aspects to my education but I also feel like my education was hindered since the school didn't have very many resources. As I came to college, I discovered that many other student came in with dual credit classes from their high school but that wasn't offered to us. I do feel as though the students became a family and we all worked together to find common interests. Without the relationships I made with the teachers, I wouldn't have been able to find such an amazing college to attend. The teachers really did work hard to make the classes as enjoyable, yet challenging as possible. Not only was I involved in sports, but I participated in many extracurricular activities such as Science club, Best Buddies, Student Council and many more. Even though Peotone High School didn't have the best resources available, the educators put a considerable amount of effort into making sure we had as many opportunities as possible to thrive after high school life.

I liked that Peotone High School was very close with the community and that every kid in school knew each other. Unfortunately, due to being in a small town , Peotone lacked a lot of diversity in its school district. But overall, Peotone High School has good sports programs and clubs along with a good selection of classes to help kids prepare for college or their work field they plan to go into post graduation.
Small school with around 500 students in total. Class sizes of 24 or less. located in a small country town. Many staff members and teachers left after a financial problem. I had almost 4 different principles in my 4 years and seemed like there was a new gym teacher everyday. Academics where very easy, so they didn't prepare me for college at all.
