Anamosa High School Reviews
I would like to see academics taken more seriously and more helpful for students going to college. Majority of the time I am not challenged enough which is not very helpful for my future, in which I hope to be challenged. I also think that Anamosa High School does not provide adequate help for students to discover what they might like to study in college or what kind of job they might want to have after college.
Too many scheduling conflicts with advanced classes, taking college classes for dual credits is impossible because the school is helping themselves and not the students who want to excel and is switching to no dual credits my senior year so my junior year I have to cram the majority of my remaining required classes, I already took two classes that were required last year that won't count for required because they changed it, and I took 1 1/2 years of P.E., that was a waste of my time because I didn't learn anything I'm moderately active, I'm healthy, and getting into better shape, and I do physical activities through the school, I was only allowed an academic waiver this 2nd semester of sophomore year. I am taking mostly Honors classes, the ones they offer, I'm a year ahead of average students in science, I'm in band and Choir which comes with required responsibilities and lesson during other classes, and my test scores are above average. I'm involved in many different extracurricular activities, not including church related activities, I am looking to work next year during school, starting this summer, I have to work my schedule around my family's schedule. I also have homework, projects,essays, etc. And if I want friends and not be stressed all the time and become depressed I need to be social around my stressful schedule.
Academics weren't that bad, however the amount of classes (and the diversity of class types/subjects) were cut these past few years. Standards-based grading also took a toll on student's ability to maintain good grades and manage time on studies well, as homework took up a majority of my after-school schedule.
