Urbandale High School has very supportive teachers who go above and beyond to help students! Their support of fine arts programs is top notch, and it shows in their music programs! Their building is new, beautiful, and state of the art.

My experience at Urbandale High School was not bad. There were moments within my high school experience where it was awful, but overall I am pleased with the school. I am not a huge fan of school, but I would not transfer if I had the chance to. I grew up with the majority of the people in the school and it was always nice to have a familiar within a classroom. Overall the teachers I had were pretty good. There are a few that were not, but besides those, I felt that my teachers did care about me. Having teachers that care is nice to have, because you do not feel scared to ask a question, and they want you to succeed as well. That feeling is nice to have. Overall my experience at the school was a good experience, especially for a tough time in your life.
Loved the diversity, and small class size. Felt like a small community where people knew each other. So many great teachers and coaches! We have been blessed!
