Iron Mountain Public Schools Reviews

Iron Mountain was a great place to go to middle and high school. Throughout the 4 years I spent at the high school, I saw the creation of new sports team (baseball), increased funding towards facilities (remodeled all the science labs and bathrooms on the second and third floor), increased funding to the arts program including a large grant to the band which was used to buy new marching uniforms which I was extremely proud to be able to march in my senior year. Iron mountain has access to some of the best minds in education, and despite seeming like a normal student in highschool, I have noticed I am much better prepared than most of my college peers and friends, especially in math. While many students struggled to pass calculus and statistics, I felt well prepared for those classes, despite not being a particularly strong math student in high school.

Staff was friendly and the PBL program was a very interesting and fun experience. During at my time at Iron Mountain I had the opportunity to try many new things, and get myself involved in various ways. Sports teams were always known for their sportsmanship and talent. It was so much fun to be apart of this kind of environment. Food quality could be better, but not bad for a public school. Class sizes got to be a little big sometimes too.
My elementary school children are having the time of their lives at North Elementary School of the Arts. They are learning way more than reading, writing and arithmetic. School used to be a place where they went to learn those things but thanks to their teachers and their wonderful principal, they are applying that knowledge to dance, art, music, drama and physical education. They have forged beautiful relationships that encourage diversity, even when the school itself is relatively homogeneous. I love North Elementary.
