Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School Reviews
I've gone to CGD School ever since I've been in preschool. The high school as a whole is overall great. Everyone gets along and almost everyone is included in an activity. I wish there were more diversity in the school since there's less than 50 Latinos in the whole school. I love my school because it's small and the average classroom size is about 25 students. CGDHS has a partnership with a community college in Fort Dodge, IA and students attend the career academy and they offer specific classes for what each student wants to go into. For example, I want to go into nursing and the career academy offers the basic perquisites that most colleges require. I'm thankful for my school and how much the teachers and the board put effort into each student.
The extracurricular opportunities at Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School are amazing. As a student, I am involved in many groups through the school. For example, I am involved in band, volleyball, golf, dance, color guard, musicals, and meals on wheels. Meals on wheels is done during school and gives the opportunity to students to serve others. Volleyball, golf, and musicals are normally practiced after school hours and has a very high level of commitment. Band is practiced during the school day and has a moderate level of commitment. Color guard and dance are done in the mornings before school officially starts and also has a moderate level of commitment. All in all, sports are the most popular extracurricular activities and our administration has full support in every extracurricular available.
I moved to Clarion not too long ago and have loved the school ever since. The teachers are welcoming and very caring. They always find different ways of teaching material and make it so the student actually take something away from it. The only thing I would change is having more diversity in food and activities. Having some more diversity in this school will positively impact the school as a whole.
