Indianola Community School District Reviews

Most of the teachers are fantastic, caring, and understanding. Mr. Polasky, the Psychology teacher, is over qualified and under appreciated in his position. The music and arts department was outstanding, now they are more focused on winning than on the health and emotional well being of each student. It is no longer inclusive. The bullying at this school has also skyrocketed, because some teachers let it slide and do not confront issues head on.

Indianola High School is a good school. They rank high in academics and the arts. The men's sports teams are lacking, but the women's often excel. The entire school district is very friendly. Indianola is a small town, but the schools have lots of resources. The school district staff is always ready and willing to help the students learn and excel in anything they want to do. Although, as in any school, the funding for the arts programs is generally low, they do not hold back when the athletic department needs anything. Indianola Community School District is a good place for children to grow and learn and develop into their own people.
The teachers at Indianola are amazing. Some aren't perfect, but most of them do a great job at getting through to students. We have a variety of sports, clubs, and classes to take. I wish we had more dual-credit classes, though. We aren't a very diverse school. The students are supportive of one another and are encouraged to be our best.
