St. Charles East High School Reviews

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.
Review St. Charles East High School
St. Charles East High School is a school that I can say I am proud I attended. With staff that cares about more than the students education, and a student body that unites in times of need, it's a school with beautiful charisma and allure. Not only does the school provide amazing education to students, but also, the activities put on by the school are an amazing time. Homecoming week alone is the best time of the year, and my favorite aspect of high school. No one does homecoming like St. Charles East. When asked to change something, I would have a difficult time coming up with it. There isn't really anything about that school I would want to change.
St. Charles East High School has given me the education I need to be successful. The majority of teachers I have had over the course of my four years at STCE have been very educated in their subject they teach. This made learning and reaching out to them so easy. The teachers want the best for you and want you to achieve greatness. There is such a wide variety of classes to choose from. St. Charles East is very diverse in the sense that there are so many different routes and opportunities students can take to fulfill their high school career and goals. For example, the Health Occupations class that Mrs. Horan teaches has let me dive into the career choices that are driven towards my wants and needs, which is the health care field. I have gotten the opportunity to contact with wonderful teachers who see me as a person as well as a student.
