Oelwein Community School District Reviews
The teachers and staff dont seem to want the best for their students. A few select teachers care about your future, but the rest only do it for the paycheck. Also, the current guidence cousler doesnt prepare you for college or help you get scholarships. However, the extra curricular activities are very good. Band, chior, drama, archery, chess, trap shooting, and even a dungeons and dragons group!
If you don't excel in sports they you don't matter to the staff at this school. I feel like a lot of the teachers are just going through the motions and don't really care whether your succeed or not. My family dealt with a bullying situation and it was not handled appropriately by the administration and was basically swept under the rug. This happened to several families in our school.
With my experience I can say that education is not the problem here, not entirely at least. Personally I have dealt with abusive staff mostly at the middle school more than anything. From dragging students to the halls to berate them, or yelling at kids for going to the bathroom for being sick- it's a big problem. At the high school it is common to see rotten food as well.
