Iowa City Community School District Reviews

I joined the Iowa City School District towards the end of my freshman year of high school. It has been a very interesting experience. The district is very diverse and that was something that I wasn't used to, but all of the students blend well and create a great atmosphere. The teachers, staff, and classes offered in the district are top notch and I really feel like they have prepared me well for not only college, but life after in whatever career I find myself in. There are numerous ways for any student to get involved, whether that be through clubs, sports, music, or any number of other extra curricular activities offered by the schools. No matter where you find your home in this district you will find students who are driven to learn, and support each other in everything they do!

The Iowa city Community School District has provided me with many great opportunities to grow as a student, athlete, musician and leader. This school district provides me with a safe place that allows me to excel in my academics and Extra- Curricular activities. Much of this is due to the fantastic teachers and employees the school district employs. The Iowa City Community School District is a great place to grow up and get an education!
The Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) has many requirements that many parents would find desirable for their children. Everything from many clubs to a college town environment. Unfortunately, the school district also has some parts that are less desirable. The school Administration Board frequently cuts necessary programs and the budget is inadequately spread throughout the schools leading to certain schools being very noticeably favored. Additionally, the school board frequently complains about their "competitive wages" and vote themselves higher wages. I would recommend less sticking money in their own pockets and more care for the students.
