My experience at Underwood High School has been excellent. Not only have they been awarded top 10 schools in the nation for 2017, but they have also been in 2018. It's a small community that has really come together in support of the school and students achievements. The teachers and staff are very well liked and bring a fun learning atmosphere to the classroom. Underwood High School is a great academic and athletic school, to say the least.

Underwood is a close-knit community that takes great pride in their education, athletics, and arts. It is a very safe school with a great academic-based culture. There is numerous members of the staff that will prepare you academically for college.
The Underwood Community School District is excellent. I have been attending school here since kindergarten. Teachers and staff members get to know you personally and make sure you are working as hard as you can every day. I have never had an issue with the district, except that it is smaller. They do not have as many opportunities as larger city schools do.
