Pella Community School District Reviews
Caring teachers and administrators! Lots of varied opportunities for students! Great supportive community to live, work, and raise your family in! No place I’d rather be.
I thought the school was awesome. I transferred from Pella and back to Pella High school during my high school career. They were incredibly helpful in everything making sure I was in good classes for my future career, and also keeping me with friends. Sports prepared me to be a disciplined man and love working hard. Teachers were always quick to help me in every area with any question, and I knew they desired to help succeed in all area.
Coming from a staff member and a parent of a child at the Pella Community school, I get to see both sides of the coin. On the teacher side of thing I would like to state that the student ratio is not 14:1. Walk into any elementary class room and you will see 28-30 students with 1 teacher. As a teacher we have no administration support or should I say our administration has no backbone. Principals/teachers are not held accountable for their behavior in the classroom and out of it. Far to many affairs with teacher/teacher/principals that need to be addressed. In Pella the kids that are good in sports run the school. As a parent, our child is a very good student which is good because seeing how the lower achieving students get help is alarming. But the biggest issue with the Pella schools isn't the education it really is on the athletics. The school puts so much emphasis on the sports teams that little else matters.
