Indianola Community School District Reviews

One of my favorite things about the Indianola Community School District is how the community supports each activity throughout the year, whether it be sports or music. The students and parents genuinely care about each other and want them to succeed. One thing I would like to see change is the awareness of mental health. I believe that too many students feel that they need to stay quiet about their feelings and just need someone to talk to. The school district could start by making changes to their policies when it comes to student's mental health and providing more groups for students suffering from disorders. Nevertheless, Indianola is a great community and it is a privilege to be a part of it.

I like how close our community is with supporting sport events, musical events, and art events. Especially during this pandemic how close our community is with trying to figure out graduation in a safe way. People help donating to the help hand so they can keep food in there food pantry. Finally grocery stores and fast food places clean their businesses to keep everyone safe and clean during these scary and uncertain times.
I like that we are a safe school district, are very involved in school spirit and promoting excellence in afters school activities. I think most of the faculty is helpful, and cares about their students. We are low in diversity amongst students, but it's mostly in our faculty. This is due to the majority of our community is Caucasian. It be nice to have an adult who's a minority, to be there for students to talk to.
