Review Decorah Community School District
It is simple. Decorah schools are completely superior to the other schools listed. Our academic, music,speech,every category Decorah outpaced every school in the state. Regularly beating schools 5 times larger. But the student achievement is so high that some students feel intimidated.
Decorah Community Schools does a great job of creating opportunities for students after graduation. They make sure to incorporate multiple extracurricular activities for students to choose from that allows everyone to stay involved. I'd like to see more diversity among students in the future as well as more cultural opportunities.
