I liked that we have many things to do every month to show our improvements throughout the year. Many students get involved in activities and clubs that we have around the school. It is amazing to see the pep section filled during football and basketball.

My experience here was very good. I enjoyed the sports that were offered and the size of the school made it easy to know everyone and make good friends.
Hiawatha High School is a great, small town school. The teachers are top notch and do an excellent job of preparing students for the rigors of college. Of course, with any small school, there are some opportunities students miss out on. However, in the long run, I wouldn't trade my experiences at HHS.
