Meadow View Park is located in the Meadow View Subdivision on the northwest side of St. Charles off of Brubaker Drive. The park is approximately 9 acres and was a park donated by Geib Construction as part of the Parkland Dedication Ordinance. The park features a baseball diamond, a playground and available parking.
Whispering Hills Park is located off of Cottonwood Drive in the heart of the Whispering Hills Subdivision. This park was donated by Dale and Vicki Gathje, owner/operators of Gathje Construction. This park consists of 9 acres and was the first of two parks that were created as a result of the Parkland Dedication Ordinance that was adopted in the early 2000s. The Gathje’s donated the land, a number of trees and landscaping. The park features a playground area, a fountain for the pond, and a paved walking/bike trail around the pond. Parking is available.
The St. Charles School District serves approximately 1,100 students in grades K-12. In addition, preschool children with disabilities are served by District staff and programs. All children from birth to age five are eligible, along with their parents, to take part in the Early Childhood Family Education program.
Our students attend either the Elementary School, pre-school through grade six, or the High School, grades seven through twelve. Our superintendent and administrative functions are housed at the High School which is also the home to monthly school board meetings. The school district is governed by a seven member Board of Directors.
We are proud of the quality instruction that takes place on a daily basis at both the High School and Elementary School and invite you to tour the while classes are in session. Please feel free to call Superintendent Jeff Apse at 507-932-4420 to arrange a guided tour or stop in the office of either building for an impromptu tour.
You want an excellent education for your child. So do we. All of us in the St. Charles Public Schools are committed to helping each student develop the knowledge, skills, and character needed to thrive in a changing world. We look forward to welcoming family to our community and hope you will join us.
