Carlisle Community School District Reviews

The Carlisle Community School District has had great success and made giant strides in nearly every aspect since I first walked into the elementary building as a kindergartner. In my time, the buildings have been restored, revamped, rebuilt, and even built. The district has expanded it's horizons; a new middle school was recently constructed. New additions such as a softball field, football field, and band room have also come about. The district has steadily increased the amount of AP courses offered, and students are performing better than ever. The close knit, small town community offers a special place where everyone knows everyone, but city life is just 15 minutes away. The Carlisle Community School District has a tradition of excellence in every capacity, and I would change nothing if given the chance.

Great school I had a great time at the school district for my whole life. This school has fantastic faculty and administrators who really make students feel heard and appreciated. Carlisle has many opportunities for getting early college experience. There are dual enrollment college credit courses that are taught at Carlisle but count at college credit through the local community college. There is also the opportunity to take any online Des Moines Area Community College at Carlisle High school junior and senior year. This is especially great as they are no cost and the school pays for the classes and books.
Carlisle School District was great for your confidence and giving you the experience that high school should give you but, you also aren't as ready as you should be for college as you would think that you are. You have great teachers that work with the kind of student that you are but you don't learn the content or the right techniques that you need to learn in order to succeed as a first year students. I went into college thinking that I was so ready and Carlisle prepared me for college and I was mistaken. It is a great district but it needs help with college readiness
