This is the best school and district I have ever attended! I have moved around the country a few times and the community and support from the staff here is unmatched! There are so many clubs here, no student could ever attend this school and not find something here for them. Along with the clubs are the course offerings. People repeatedly compare the number of diverse courses here to that of large colleges. Overall, this is an amazing school and is much better than any other district around the country that I have tried.

Great teachers, great people! I've had a great time at this school. I love the range of classes they offer-especially the duel credit/duel enrollment program partnered with Elgin Community College. However, I wish the duel credit program was more advertised. I only found it because a former teacher told me to look for it.
I loved my experience as a student at St. Charles East! Every year out of my four my teachers were very invested in their jobs, the building was a safe and fun place to be, and I was proud to call myself a Saint. East gave me many chances to succeed and help with my post-secondary plans while at the same time living in the moment and making the most out of a high school experience! I am very sad to be leaving East but I know being a Saint has shaped me into the person I want to be.
