Cedar Rapids Community School District Reviews
Going through k-12 in the CRCSD was my entire school life. I learned how to read, write, add, and subtract, all the way up to taking the integrals of functions and writing complex 5 page research papers. The staff was there to help me every step of the way! I am now in college and i never really understood how helpful they were until I started my first high level course...and i realized how much we all really took them for granted. I am planning on going back and coaching sometime here soon, it'll be nice to be back.
The cedar rapids school district board needs to improve the safety and well being of students, and continually adjust policies when they are not working. Not all schools within the district will respond the same way to new policies so individual schools should be allowed to adjust their own rules, instead of forcing all cedar rapids school districts to follow the exact same rules. There are some very good teachers in the cedar rapids school district who should be more involved in the CRSD board's decisions.
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!
