Cedar Rapids Community School District Reviews

In the CRCSD I really enjoyed how tied together all the Cedar Rapids Schools were. Everyone so passionate about there own school. Starting very young the schools all have club sports teams which is a quick and easy way to meet people you will be going to high school with, and there's nothing better than having a rivalry or playing against some of your best friends for multiple years! CRCSD has prepared me for college with the great amount of college courses provided. Here at Kennedy, academics are very important and teacher want to see students excel. One thing I would like to see change is a wider variety of foods. We have the same foods on the same schedules and it gets a little old, especially when you have a few of the same options 3+ times a week. Another thing I would like to see change is to have other administrators more connected with students, not just the principal. Overall the CRCSD is a great community, but with a few slight changes it would be perfect!

Cedar Rapids Community School District is a superb program whose main focus is to provide financial support to and promote excellence in the Cedar Rapids Public Schools. Through the funding of projects and programs, the foundation works to enhance the educational experience of students in the public schools.  It has several programs, such as the student enrichment program, school district grants, enrollment of kids in the community, and many more. This program works with student of the community to aide hem financially, as well as academically in order for them to succeed. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone in the district. It has helped my mother's friend who lives there and her daughter. When I visited the place, it was nice the staff was welcoming and the atmosphere was warm. And the best part of this was the food. I was delicious, best I have ever had.
I've generally had a very positive experience within my school district. The teachers from grade school all the way to high school have been very helpful, easy to work with, and respectful. I've been in the same district my whole life and wouldn't change it if I could, it's like a family here. That being said, I do wish there was better representation for the arts in our district as all schools have phenomenal choir, band, and theatre programs but we get little recognition. As an arts student, we deserve just as much recognition as the sports.
