this school is awesome if you fit in. If you have a learning disability or special needs be prepared for a long battle. Bullying is out of control and the schools thinks it doent have a problem

This school is a wonderful school! Nearly every after school sport you could think of! The teachers are wonderful are parents are very involved! Great art classes and a great band with semiprivate lessons for free! The chorus teachers really know what they are doing! This school only hires experienced teachers and has the best principals! They also use great, fun ways to teach the kids, so the kids love the classes! This school's test scores are some of the best in the state of Iowa and possibly the country! The gym classes are exceptional as well, and keep the students in top shape! The school includes a large gym, a swimming pool, a climbing wall, some of the only reaction walls in the country, and a large cafetorium (cafeteria/auditiorium). This school is simply the best!
