I just graduated from Anamosa high School and looking back it was not as bad as I thought it was during those four long years. It's a small school, my graduating class was only 92 and with a small school usually comes bad quality. I would say it has good teachers that know their stuff but the district doesn't pay them enough so it's rare for anyone to stay for awhile. There are good classes and I do think there is adequate college preparation though

I was a high school transfer my sophomore year. I have had great experience in sports and academics, but there are many things that can be improved. I was accepted right a way by many people. The students and teachers were very welcoming as well. I believe that standards base grading is setting up everyone to fail. Being able to retake a test as many times as one wants, teaches students to get in the habit of not studying.
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.
