Pocahontas Area Community School District Reviews

Recently Pocahontas has gotten a new school, it's getting added on to this year (2017-2018). I enjoy that k-12 grades get their own computers, and Pocahontas has advanced their technology. Pocahontas is a friendly and safe environment. I would like to see teachers and staff wanting to help students more. It would be a lot nicer if teachers would assign homework around most students busiest days with games and other activities.

Wonderful school to go to. State of the art building as very well taken care of! Only the best faculty are hired to work here. They are continually adding onto the school to accommodate larger population of children from area towns
It was very sports focused not many other clubs were cared about. The teachers focus more on students in sports than other students in the classroom. They are small classes so the teacher knows everyone in the class.
