College Community School District Reviews

During my time at College Community School District, I have had what I believe to be the best education that I could have possibly gotten. Throughout my school career, I have learned the important impact that my teachers have had on me. Most classes are pretty diverse, however, a majority of our school is white. We do have lots of differently identified students ranging from religion, disabilities, sexuality, and others such as our trans students.Our school has made sure to treat all of the students the same which is what I and my peers will continue to do for the rest of our lives. No matter who we are our school helps us prepare for our lives outside of the district. From classes teaching us about finance in college to sending us to community colleges nearby to get college credits.Our teachers spend lots of time going beyond the expectations of teachers. Which is why the only thing average about College Community School District is the food!

Some teachers were great but many have been subpar. They still have Spanish classes starting in k. Theres no orchestra! Some school's are new yet others need repair. I would love to see uniforms implemented allowing teachers to focus on teaching. The food is disgusting but at least some of the kids eat it. There should be more variety & options at all schools or kids should be assigned to schools based on food allergies so theyre not completely singled out. The kid allergic to peanuts should not have to sit alone at each elementary & if all the lactose intolerant were at 1 school they could have a milk option... They are open to parents volunteering we are allowed to be as involved or uninvolved as we want. I wish kids could feel safe to address issues about students & teachers as teachers like Mrs. Hill do not belong in school. They are tech savvy, kids have tablets in the young classes, and loaned computers in the higher grades.
College community is one of the best schools in and around the Cedar Rapids area. The teachers address bullying before it becomes an issue by teaching the kids respect for one another. Both my children have excelled in all their classes and noticed a positive change in behavior since leaving CRSD. The administration has been great when I have concerns as a parent and help the kids excel at every aspect of their education, including state assessments. Keep up the great work Prairie!
