Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District Reviews
I liked that it was a small town school and that there was less than 500 students. However the school was very clique. A lot of the funding was placed into the sport teams. The football team got new uniforms at least every other year. While the fine arts had to use old graduation gowns for robes and the marching band had 10+ year old out dated uniforms. The choir finally got actual choir robes with the help of lots of fundraising and community donations (in 2016). The education is typical for a state funded school. If you take the initiative and apply yourself, you can get some great education.
As an Alum of Vinton-Shellsburg High School I have nothing but great memories of my time there. While no school is perfect there are a few things I can think of that this school district did very well. From feeling welcome to finding your strong suit Vinton-Shellsburg staff is there to help every step of the way. The staff was always willing to go above and beyond to help any student. Wether related to their specific class or helping with other activities they always tried their best to help anyone succeed. I cannot express how grateful I am for the staff and their hard work to constantly keep the school and all activities going strong. Without the activities offered I would have never learned what I was really good at, and find my talents. Vinton-Shellsburg School District does an excellent job of helping each student perform to the best of their abilities and find who they truly are.
I graduated from Vinton-Shellsburg High School and continued on to college. Overall, I was satisfied with my experience. There were many opportunities for students to get involved outside the classroom. The teachers and academics were the best part of this school district. They actually cared about their students and how they were preforming in the classroom.
