St. Charles North is an amazing school. Although the courses are rigorous, the teachers are positive and willing to provide support. Numerous resources are additionally available for struggling students, such as the Writing Center, the Math Lab, and Peer Tutoring. There is a chance for everyone to get involved. From Model UN to Football, the activities and sports are endless, which provides students an ample opportunity to meet new people, have fun, and make memories. Although St. Charles North High School is filled with academic and social opportunities, it is not culturally diverse. There have been attempts to infuse more culture into St. Charles North, such as the creation of the Indian Student Association, but there are no other cultural groups or activities to inform the North Star community about their cultures. With more cultural groups, St. Charles North would be able to promote a more open, accepting, and diverse environment.

St. Charles North High School is like no other. A blue ribbon school that always excels in academics and sports (especially this year). The excellence in sports this year was amazing, made my senior year even more exciting. We had our girls volleyball team, boys soccer teams, swim team, golf team all go to state. This year was the first time girls volleyball and boys soccer went to state and it was exciting to watch because I had best friends on the team. But overall, these four years have been a great learning experience. At St. Charles North, I learned how to socialize, how to study correctly, how to make friends with different types of people, etc. Also, high school sports are way different than middle school sports, especially at St Charles North. At this school, the spirit for our school sports is unreal and I’m glad to be able to witness it (being a member on the basketball team)
Overall, St. Charles North High School is a great school with supportive teachers where you will be sure to receive a great education. There is a great assortment of AP and Honors Courses, high test scores, engaged teachers, and a fantastic music program. My only criticisms are that the athletic community far outweighs the importance of all other communities and the homework load is very large compared to other schools in the Chicago suburban area.
