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!
