Exira Community School District Reviews
I have gone to the Exira Elk Horn Kimballton Community School District from preschool to senior year. I have enjoyed every year at the school because we are a close community and there is a lot of love and support from teachers, fellow students, and parents. Although our school is small, we have a lot of love for each other, and we work together to accomplish goals. We have great sports programs including basketball, football, baseball, softball, wrestling, and more! The teachers here at Exira Elk Horn Kimballton are always willing to put in extra time and effort in order to help their students achieve their goals. Of course, if I had a choice in where I went to school, I would absolutely choose to go to Exira EHK again because I have had an incredible experience.
I like the personal relationships between the faculty and the student body. The small class sizes offer an up close and personal experience in all classes. I feel like the student body as a whole can feel comfortable going to school every day. One thing I would change about our school is the guidance counselor. We only have one for the elementary, middle school, and high school. Having a combined school district with Elk Horn, she has to travel back and forth and is usually only at the high school two to three days a week. This leaves some urgent mattes unsolved, and leaves me and my fellow seniors who need help with things such as scholarships, college visits, and college applications left out to dry. It also leaves all other high school grades without the help they may need. I think our school district needs to hire another counselor for high school only, so that they can always be there when all the kids need them.
