Van Meter Community School District is a wonderful school to attend. The teachers genuinely care about your success and are always willing to help you, whether it's an academic or personal issue you are dealing with. I've been very fortunate to attend Van Meter and receive a great education.
I had a great experience. It's big enough to provide ample opportunities but small enough so you can develop quality relationships with other students and staff. It would be hard to find a better place to go to school.
