Humboldt Community School District Reviews

Though in a small town, this school offers so many opportunities that I am so grateful I had. Some AP courses are offered, and many college courses online, in school, and at the local community college. I am very grateful for the band program that consists of marching band, concert band, pep band, pit orchestra, and jazz band. This is growing rarity in small towns. Many of the teachers have Master's degrees. You cannot be promised super thorough teachers in every subject, but I did find some that I am so thankful for. I could make personal connections, and still keep in contact with them.

The math program is especially strong.

The food is horrible, but the learning experience is great. Some extra curricular activities, like music classes or sports, lack attention.
High School Principal is the best. She really cares about the students. She takes care of issues confidentially and quickly and is very good at coming up with a solution that works for everyone. She puts in very long hours. She has handled scheduling issues for us more than once after guidance counselor dropped the ball. Principal gets it done!
