Anamosa Community School District Reviews

I have been a student in the Anamosa School district since preschool. I have seen many changes, some good and some not so good. During my Middle School years we opened a brand new location. The school was laid out really nicely and each grade had their own wing. The music rooms were not designed big enough for all the kids that participated in the programs. During my high school years we changed grading systems from ABCDF to standardized grading. The new system is really hard to use and you can fail if you don't do well on as little as one learning target. We have many new classes that are interesting and help with what I am going to continue on in Cosmetology.

Anamosa is great because it is a small school and you really get to know your peers. I half probably had a conversation with everyone in my class at least once, and I have friends from many grades. I also love how we have a lot of opportunities to join clubs and activities. I am involved in theatre, band, color guard, winter guard, speech, and a few other small clubs.
I am a junior at Anamosa High School. With sports, I have had a great experience with my coaches. (I am involved with track and cross country.) Some teachers are great, while others are quite poor. Some of the AP teachers are not good at preparing students for the AP exams. I think the school culture is overall good. We have pep assemblies to recognize sports teams and clubs/activities, and just have fun. Our administration is fairly new and with a new grading system, it has been a little frustrating. However, I think things are going in the right direction. With Anamosa being a small school, parents are involved quite often which creates a supportive environment. I bring my own lunch to school because I am not a fan of the food. Our school is fairly old, but we have a gorgeous new music wing with a large auditorium.
