Iowa City Community School District Reviews

I attend West high school, it has a somewhat different feel to it than other schools. It is a public school and
its academics are almost as popular and are pushed as a social status more than sports. The teachers are great if you take Honors or AP. The school always pushes for people to sign up for AP. It's more multiracial than white. Teachers always show up an hour before 1st period and usually stay after school. They have many "veteran" teachers teaching over 20 years which makes them very experienced and effective. The school has a tutoring program in which AP students (usually upper-classmen like myself) can sign up for silver-cord hours to tutor freshman AP, honors, and general students in their subject, during open periods, lunch, after, and before school.

The Iowa City Community School district needs more community involvement and support. Besides that fault, the district offers many opportunities through sports and clubs for everyone. Through funding, the district offers many resources for students to grow and learn. The district is always on top of making sure the school is a safe learning environment for everyone. Teachers in the district treat everyone equally and respectfully. Even more so, the Iowa City Community School district puts their students first, no matter what background they come from.
Iowa city west high is very diverse. Everyone is so different, and it’s exciting to get to know everyone. Recently West high has changed a few things to become even more inclusive. Instead of having your traditional homecoming king and queen; we now award multiple hero’s of Troy. This is more inclusive because there are many students who don’t identify as male or female. People who are nominated are kind and good examples to all students. I believe this change has made us come together more as a community and hopefully will inspire other schools to become more inclusive too.
