Pella Community School District Reviews

8 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Pella Community School District
Pella Community School District is a great place for any student who is looking for a variety of classes, but the ethnic backgrounds of students are limited, therefore most students experience the same thing as all their classmates.
There's a lot that's wrong with the school, the construction there has been a pain but there's so much right with it, the teacher's besides 2 or 3 out of like 60 are amazing, the atmosphere is great and competitive, and I feel super ready for college.
