Le Mars Community School District Reviews

I like that it is a small school, where you can really have the opportunity to make a connection with those around you. If I could change one thing about Le Mars Community School District, it would be the way that they involve parents. As a small school district, everybody seems to know everyone, and because of that many people who move into the district don't feel as welcome.

Terrible food. Allows bullies to bully. Always smells bad. This school has a terrible environment filled with obnoxious classmates who want to anger you. If you find friends here, they'll disappear in a week because they went to a juvenile detention facility. The lunchladies fight about how to properly cut the oranges.
The music program at Le Mars Community is by far a top notch program, especially in the area of choir. There is way too much favoritism in the sports, just like most smaller schools. Academically, guidance councelors should be more involved with the students early on rather than nearing the end of high school.
