My school is absolutely the best environment for any kid to grow u pin. We have so much to offer, and we have big school pride. Our teachers know how to treat their students and are very, very supportive of everything that each and every student decides to do. We get a very hands-on education and have a-lot of fun learning. We have a very nice library where we can check out books any time. Of course our school has standards.. but every school does. Our sports program is excellent. In 2014, our Keota Eagles Basketball boys made it to state! We are a very small school, which makes it all the better. No bullying goes on for the most part, and classes are small. Each student is very good friends with their classmates, which makes our school ever the more closer. We've just lost a principal, but already have a new one ready to make our school a bigger and better place. The students of KHS would welcome any new student like they've been with them for the entire school experience. We know how to be kind and show pride. Which a lot of bigger schools cannot say. So, in conclusion.. do not the size of our school scare you. We are small, but we have a lot to show for. Sincerely, Proud Student

This is a great school leading in test scores in Iowa. Basketball team is very well coached and successful, along with Volleyball and Speech/Drama dept. Kids have opportunities to participate in a variety of activities and actully get to particpate, not just on the sidelines. Alumni from Keota go on to be successful in college, and lead the way in their chosen fields. Staff is wonderful at Keota. The town has great Eagle Pride and are defending SICL Champs year after year in Basketball. Top notch in education, sports, faith and family.

Even though my oldest has only completed 1 year of school at Keota, my wife and I are very impressed with the teaching staff and the involvement of the parents in their child's education. As a newcomer you can definitely sense a lot of pride in both the community and the schools. Something which is hard to feel as strongly about in a larger school (at least from my own experience). Go Eagles....

Keota has offered me, my husband, and our two children a great education. My children are either in college or graduates. I graduated from Keota many years ago and am now in an executive position in my field. The district offers college level courses which challenge even top students. A small school to be sure but overall, the teachers care about the students. Most of the teachers live in the community and have children in the school system. Great extracurricular activities too. The vocal music department involves between a third and half of the high school student population. The shared football program between Keota and Sigourney is a perennial powerhouse in the state. Keota's volleyball program is also a state contender. Both girls and boys track teams are strong. The community is clean and thriving with small businesses, often owned/operated by persons raised in the community.

Let's just say my children moved here from a larger school district and I niavely thought they would do better with more one on one attention. They are not! and the confrences I have continuously had with the teachers have resulted in absolutly no follow up. For some reason the administration does not feel they should have to follow through with the action plans that are set up between parents and teachers.
