Roland-Story Community School District Reviews

I´ve had a great experience at Roland-Story High School. I moved here last year from the Chicago suburbs and was very welcomed by many students and staff. On my unofficial first day of enrollment, I was given a tour of the school by a group of seniors who introduced me to all of the teachers. The teachers at Roland-Story are some of the best I´ve ever had. One teacher, in particular, is amusing and always has a story to tell that he can relate to the lesson. The community involvement of the district is unique. Every year during the fall, different groups of students help the community by raking leaves and cleaning the yards of people who live in town. By far the best experience I´ve had at Roland-Story was building a Halloween activity called Haunted Highschool. During a three-week time span, my classmates and I used the shop to build ramps, frames, and other wood objects for a haunted house course. Overall, my experience at Roland-Story Highschool has been fun and beneficial.

Roland-Story is one of the best schools that I have been too. The community and town just makes you feel safe and comfortable. It may be small, but the people make it feel big. The teachers at Roland-Story are very nice too. They learn every students name and they make sure that every student is doing good in school while making sure they are having fun at the same time. Roland-Story Community School District is a great place for children to start and finish their education.
Overall, Roland-Story is a positive environment that prepared me for college. I had to try for it though. If I wasn't academically gifted, I probably wouldn't have succeeded. Some of the teachers are great, others are not. There was a huge push to go to DMACC and I didn't want to do that, so I didn't get a lot of college guidance.
