As a graduate of Pella Community High School, I felt challenged and supported during my high school experience. The transition to college (4-year state university, honors program) was an easy one: Many of my high school classes were more difficult than a majority of my college courses. There were many excellent extracurricular opportunities available in sports, music, art, drama, academia and more. It is easy to get involved, and the programs are very competitive with other schools (jazz and marching band, basketball, football, soccer and drill team are some of the best 3A in the state). The community is also extremely supportive of the schools, and a majority of teachers are very passionate about students and the subjects they teach. Responsibility and values are also strongly emphasized throughout the district, as is parental involvement. Classes are around 200, large enough to have choices in friends but small enough that you know your classmates. I'm not sure why Pella High has a less-than-stellar rating on this site, considering they are recognized around the state as being one of the best schools around.

My school is one of the best public schools in Iowa to attend. We have an amazing teaching staff that cares about every student and want everyone to succeed. They go out of their way to do so. I like everything about my school! The staff, the sports, the programs, and the school itself! We have 1 to 1 laptops and they contribute greatly to learning here. There is really no way it could improve! This public school is awesome to go to!

I can't believe the material they are covering at the grade levels. They are more advanced than my HS in 1981. The teachers are all top notch. I don't like Pella, but the school system is second to none!
