Ames Community School District Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Really good experience, there's a lot of really good teachers, you have a lot of opportunities to join different clubs. From Feminist Club to Spectrum to Lettuce Club, there's just about anything. A lot of choices with AP classes, and there are multiple options for the types of classes you'd want to take. The cafeteria doesn't have many options for vegetarian foods, so you'd have to bring your own lunch if you'd want anything good.

Great teachers and advanced academic opportunities, also great elective options. Definitely geared toward college prep rather than skilled trades, but teaches a very effective base of complete knowledge for any student.
Ames Community School District is an outstanding school district. The staff is always helping the students to succeed and do their best.
