Waterloo Community School District Reviews
I enjoy the diversity that the Waterloo school district has. There is a good combination for all different cultures and families and we have a variety of teachers which means there are a lot of options for students that need a different kind of teaching style to help them understand. The Waterloo Community School District also has a lot of good extra circular activities, such as: band, choir, sports, speech, theater etc. There is something everybody as long as they are willing to join in!
I enjoy the teachers' enthusiasm to teach every day and the fact that they wanted to connect with their students. Everyone loved homecoming week because we wouldn't need to wear uniforms and there were specific themes for each day. Students and Staff are friendly and provide a positive environment. They have recently built a building, the Waterloo Career Center, and they have college classes there for juniors and seniors so they can receive college credit for no cost to them. I would not change anything about the Waterloo Community School District.
I have found the Waterloo Community School District to be an evolving school system. The district does their best to give all their students the opportunity to succeed within their education. I have found teachers, coaches, and mentors in the district that are devoted to seeing me and my peers thrive. Within the next few years, I'd like to see Waterloo Schools allow students to express themselves more. By removing dress code and granting students access to more student life decisions, I believe that the district will be viewed as more modern and welcoming.
