Ankeny Community School District Reviews

7 reviews
All Categories
It was very boring for someone like me. This school district prides itself on academic and sports performance but their art classes lacked the sort of magic that an art class should have. There are usually only one or two art teachers per school, and the two high schools have to share teachers. All the budget seemed to be put into meaningless events and none was invested in having a well rounded curriculum choice or quality art teachers. It was very much like they were saying "hey kids, go into math and science or literature and theatre." There was little to no incentive to pursue art. While the quality of the classes for the required courses were hit-or-miss, I lament the missed opportunities for the visual art field simply because there was bare minimum investment from our benefactors, especially as someone who is now pursing a career in graphic design.
Review Ankeny Community School District
Great community with the best scholastic record in the area. Even have a Before and After School Program for more kid friendly enrichment!
The environment in the Ankeny School District is one that has been with me all of my childhood. I have been in the district since kindergarten, and wouldn't have it any other way. The people in our school are polite and helpful, and I feel that they really care about us and our success. The classes the school district offers gives students the opportunity to explore many different things before going on to college. This district is a great one that I am glad I am part of.
