Cedar Falls Community School District Reviews

The Cedar Falls Community School district has a strong reputation for excellence. Most of the teachers here are very good at covering the topics required in their classes and making sure the students understand the material. I have gone to the school district since first grade, and have enjoyed my time here thoroughly. Most of the students here are very open and kind, but I cannot say that for all of them. The inquisitive nature of those who attend these schools allows them to learn more easily and provide an atmosphere of learning for the rest of the student body. They are over capacity in many of their schools, but the addition of a new elementary, additions to the existing schools, and plans to build a new high school will soon alleviate that stress. Overall, I love this school district and rate it quite highly!

I transferred from Sac City High School to Cedar Falls High School in the beginning of 10th grade. I was upset about many things at the time, but my high school counselor helped me through it. I have evolved into a better person with the help of my teachers at the high school, and I will continue to evolve as I go on to college. The teachers at Cedar Falls High School are so incredibly helpful and there for you. Students create an unbreakable bond with teachers here. Not only are the teachers wonderful, but I am provided with so much more opportunities than at my old high school. There's more honor classes, a better theater program, more classes in general, and able to get college credit for certain classes as well. Cedar Falls High School is an amazing school and I am proud to say that I graduated here.
We have two boys who have attended Cedar Falls Schools from Kindergarten to graduation and a third who is in 9th grade. Our experience with the school district has been nothing but wonderful. We have had some of the best teachers parents could ask for. We had a few teachers that were a little less than amazing but they were all very good to our children. The principals we have worked with have also been very inviting and accepting of the boys. We have had conferences with all of their teachers and were always pleased with the way conferences were handled even when there was less then excellent information to share. The elementary school that they all attended was like a family to all of us. I served on the PTA as vice president, president and past president for 6 years. While serving on the PTA I felt the staff accepted me as part of their school family. I have nothing but great things to say about the Cedar Falls School District.
