Our 3 kids had a great experience there. Caring teachers, great principal, and overall positive learning experience. For those parents who take the opportunity to be involved it is a great choice.

Tend to agree with the 2009 statements regarding the small town attitudes, clicks and gossiping among teachers and assistants. Teachers are only nuturing and caring towards their own. Too many relatives hired in one organization usually does not work out for those who are not related. Maquoketa schools are a prime example of this. My son is now in a school that can make the state grade!

The Briggs Principal, teachers and staff are some of the most caring and loving people I have met and I am thankful my daughter gets the opportunity to learn in a small community. I moved to Maquoketa from Atlanta 8 years ago and am so thankful my daughter is growing up in a loving and caring environment that stimulates learning without fear or judgement. Students are treated and encouraged to be the best they can be! Thank you Briggs Elementary!

A lot of favortisim in these schools. Small town, everyone is related to someone. Not very acceptive of 'newcomers'. The only opinion that counts in theirs. You are basically along for the ride and need to keep your mouth shut.

If it was not for the clickish, small town mentality of Maquoketa schools they could be awesome.
