I changed school district to start my freshman year of high school. I was really nervous and unsure of my surroundings. Those feelings quickly vanished with my first class of the day. I already felt welcomed and like I belonged. For the most part i had some really kind and understanding teachers all four years. That being said I can't help but feel that as a school district they did not prepare us for real life like they should have. It was not a competitive school with many options of higher classes due to the district not having the resources to. Overall I loved my school, teachers, and classmates. I truly believe Maquoketa high school is the reason why I found my passion of being a high school teacher.

Overall a pretty good school, has its issue like all smaller schools. Athletics are a big deal, most teachers are willing to help one on one. The community college located on campus is a huge benefit! Tons of opportunities for students to become involved.
I am very grateful for the education I received while part of the Maquoketa Community School District. This school district is made very special by the enthusiasm of the teachers, administrators, and other staff. Here, every effort is made to collaborate with the students in order to create the best educational experience possible.
