Dubuque Senior High School 2

Very cliche school. Jocks, drama, and nerds. Makes me wanna puke. Teachers are amazing but the social life is down the toilet. Student doesn't do anything important. They are pretty much just there to do the grunt work. I quit stuco my sophomore year. Everyone is biased and are in love with senior. It is a very contagious poison kind of school.

I love this community! The staff and administration understand the kids and create a positive culture. No mater what kind of student you have or what they are interested in they will find a group of peers. The athletic coaches teach responsibility and respect. The teachers teach life skills and put the responsibility of the class on the student to help ready them for college or for employment.

Maybe I'm a little biased, but i think that this is the best school in Dubuque. The administration keeps things in line and are respected. Kids don't get bullied for being gay or different, which is really important. We have amazing school spirit, and a lot of the school shows up to cheer on our team or go see the musical. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
