La Crescent-Hokah School District Reviews
At La Crescent High School, there are few opportunities for students that are looking to pursue a higher education. There are no AP classes, and very few college classes offered. However, there is still an opportunity for high school students to enroll in a Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program. Personally, I took this route and was able to receive college credits while still attending high school. I think this is a beneficial option for the majority of high school students and should have more of an emphasis in future years.
At La Crescent Hokah School district, I really enjoyed the personal connection that some teachers made with their students. When I came to these teachers for help, they would never push me to the side. These teachers also strived to make their class fun and exciting. If I could change anything about this school, I would change the behaviors of some of the students. Especially in the current 2017-2018 school year, we have dealt with a lot of bullying. Fortunately, some of the groups that I am involved in have taken steps to combat bullying, so I hope this will change in the future years.
Although La Crescent has many problems with their school including not having enough money for a lot of things, their academics is one of the best in the area. The school spirit is poor, but when all of your sports have been terrible for the last many years besides cross country, you can't expect too much. The administration is very senseless and does absolutely nothing to improve the school. They spend their money on non-important things and seem to be making all the wrong decisions to better the school. The structure of the school is falling apart and students are starting to be not ready to be on their own and support themselves. Above all of the things that are wrong, the education is above-par and you do learn a lot. Many of the students receive an above normal score on their ACT despite the many things wrong with the school.
