Comstock High School5

I had two children graduate from Comstock. Both went to college after and are very successful, in part from the great experience we had in this school system. My oldest has moved back into the community and her oldest is now enrolled in Comstock, hoping to continue a great tradition.
Comstock Schools is a great district. Small enough that you can get to know the teachers and administrators on a first name basis, but large enought to offer kids a wide variety of AP courses and electives. Older well built school buildings that are in the process of being updated. Property taxes are the lowest in the county.
These schools provide an excellent learning environment for my children. The sports and band programs are tops. New science labs and the past two bonds have helped greatly. Diversity here better prepares my kids than it would at a school like Gull Lake or Galesburg. Go Colts, we love these schools!
This is a horrible school. Teachers don't have enough supplies or get paid enough to care about anyone's education. The absence policy is ridiculous, saying if you have 12 absences in one trimester you fail. The school is overcrowded and people get in trouble for small things like hats when serious problems disrupting others' education occurs. The principal only cares about the athletes.
