St. Charles East High School is a school that provides academic and activity opportunity for all levels. Something I enjoy about East is the program 'Saints Supporting Saints'. This program requires all sports team to attend and support two other teams in our school. This program allows for the more "unpopular" sports to be recognized an given a chance to show that they are just as important as the more well-known sports. This also shows the sportsmanship and pride our school has for each other. St. Charles East is a great school for sports and academic opportunity, however, there is one thing I would change about it. Having teachers that are passionate and helpful in the subject that they teach is very important. In the past I have experienced teachers who do not demonstrate either qualities. I would like for the hiring staff of St. Charles East to do follow up reports on the teachers frequently and listen to what the students are saying about the teachers.

There is a large variety of classes offered through St. Charles East High School. Almost all of the teachers are dedicated to doing their best to teach this generation of kids to be the best adults that they can. STCE also offered the opportunity to participate in the PE Student Leaders Program which involved a lifeguard certification the first semester of junior year (which took place in the school's swimming pool), and AED/CPR and first aid training the second semester. As a senior, students were able to work with other students alongside one of the physical education teachers as a teacher's assistant. In addition, the AP courses offered at the school prepared me for college and allowed me to gain credit for three separate classes, and other students were able to earn more credits depending on the amount of AP classes taken and their scores on the AP exam. Overall, I would say it is deserving of a five star rating.
My experience at St. Charles East High School could not have been more enjoyable, and I know I'm not only speaking for myself when I say this. With the passionate teachers, immense school spirit, overall collective pride of everyone who's a Saint, and grand amount of opportunities for all students, there is no place I can imagine a more enjoyable and memorable high school experience.
