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.
Review Cedar Rapids Community School District
This school district has provided by far, my best educational experience. From my own high school, John F Kennedy High school which has been ranked #1 in the state, to its neighboring institutions, the administration and staff are all committed to my success. Teachers are enthusiastic to work there and administration is accommodating and accepting of my needs. I can safely say that the Cedar Rapids Community School District has made my high school career one I can be fond of.
I had an amazing experience throughout my years in the Cedar Rapids district. There were so many opportunities to participate in activities and ways to get involved with the community. I had great staff and teachers from kindergarten all the way through my senior year of high school. I would like to see more interaction between the district staff and the students. There is a lot of interaction between the district staff and teachers but not as much with the students. It has been improving over the past couple of years but there is always room for improvement.
