Muscatine Community School District Reviews

Overall, I had a very good experience at Muscatine High School. Most of the teachers genuinely care about their students, but there were also teachers who did not seem to care at all. The food is terrible, as well as very costly. My recommendation for the school would be to increase the quality of the food in order to justify the price. There is a lot of community support for our school districts, which is awesome, but occasionally I feel that support is given for the wrong thing, or the school district acts without the communities opinion. For example, all of the school districts have been made into the little Muskies instead of having their own individual mascots and personality. The walls in all schools have been painted purple and gray, and all the furniture replaced to be those colors also. Although I could see the argument that this will make our schools look more uniform, it does not support personality and imagination in the growing minds of young children.

Muscatine School district is a very safe district, but sadly it lacks the college readiness and preperation that students need. The administration is sadly more interested in passing students rather than getting to help students with their needs. But on the other hand, the teachers are wonderful and very in tune with their students needs, dreams and goals.
Something I love about the Muscatine community school district is that it is such a small community, everything is hands on and it is a very close knit group. Everyone is always working together to have the best outcome and doing their best to keep the education the best.
