Louisa-Muscatine Community School District Reviews

I love our school because our teachers are extremely helpful and caring. Our coaches and directors are top notch as well. I have been in Louisa-Muscatine School District for my whole life. It is a family atmosphere, but as any high school, we have many cliques. This can break up the bonds we have all formed at our small school since preschool, but for the most part we are very united. Being in one of the poorest counties in Iowa, (we are primarily Louisa county), we need updated facilities and do not have an auditorium, even though our choral program is extremely decorated. Overall, I would not go to any other high school. The bonds and experiences I have formed at our rural Iowa school will be remembered forever.

We are such a tight-knit close community, and most of us have all grown up together. We have amazing staff that are great at shaping the students to become better individuals. We need to work on having better resources and facilities because it sometimes interferes with our learning, especially when the internet or heat does not work. Our staff and administration work hard to ensure that Louisa-Muscatine feels like home.
My experience at Louisa Muscatine would be a lot different then others. I say this because most would look at my school and just keep on going because it's a small school. But that's one of the key parts to this fantastic school because of the small atmosphere you get to know everyone in the school. Plus the teachers are the best. They can work and want to work with you day in and day out. This has definitely made me in who I am today because they set a standard for us and it's making us realize the bigger picture and that's for our education and our future.
