I love my school! Algona is the best place to be. My teachers care about me, challenge me, and want me to succeed. I feel like I am being prepared for colleges in my wide variety of class choices. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Some teachers have gone to a switched classroom to help incorporate technology. This means that the student watches a video of the lesson at home and they work on the homework in class. Some teachers also use the Chromebooks now that we have gone 1:1. The online classrooms are an interactive way to use technology in the classroom. Also the smart boards have helped us use technology. Teachers at Algona High are very approachable. We have good relationships with them in school and out. They truly care for us. Consistency in grading is usually very well. Although, they have the normal bias during grading of papers which is found at every school based on teachers preference.
Students at Algona High School are very involved. Weather it is in athletic sports, speech, or an academic club I would say 90% of students are involved in at least one. Our school spirit is very high too. Our bleachers are always packed and the auditorium is always full. We do not have much racial diversity at our school, although there is some. I believe that the kids accept it very well and it is helping prepare us for the future. We also have Spanish offered as a second language at the high school, and I think having some Spanish speaking students has really helped us learn better.
