Pella Community School District Reviews
In general the students are friendly and open to new students. The athletic programs and facilities are good. Most sports make it to state each year. The music and band programs are very successful, often winning state wide competition. The teachers are kind and respectful and very willing to listen to students questions and concerns. The students seem to score fairly high on academic tests. The high school has done a lot of renovating lately, so have top of the line resources for students. There is a huge lack of diversity in the Pella school system and causes a problem for some student of different races. This is mainly due to being in a small Iowa town.
I grew up in Pella and feel like I was supported and challenged throughout my schooling experience. I was given many opportunities to join different groups, try new things, and take on leadership positions. The teachers at the schools truly care about students as individuals and want to see them succeed. They will do whatever they can to help their students be successful. Recent building updates have really helped improve the district facilities.
Pella schools is an excellent place to become a student athlete with high character. From elementary, to intermediate, to middle school and through high school the teachers and coaches are top-notch and caring.
