Waverly-Shell Rock Community School District Reviews

I like how tight-knit the community is. Everybody seems to recognize each other. That is the great part of being in a smaller school district. Also, every teacher personalizes a lesson experience for their students. In every class I have taken here, my teachers have always asked me how they can help and customized a lesson designed especially for me if I missed class. One issue that I would like to address is concerning school buses. The junior high students have to walk all the way over to the high school, in all the rain and snow that Iowa has. Sometimes they can catch a cold from walking outside when it is so cold out.

My experience at Waverly Shell Rock Schools has been excellent. The instructors and educational programs are exceptional! Our districts promotes a fun, safe working environment and allows us as students to to grow in the classroom, to prepare us for life's journey ahead. Our facilities our outstanding, adding recent updates to help keep students safe in the event of an emergency. Our academics are top notch, helping students to succeed at the highest level. Thank you Waverly Shell Rock for the education I have received for the past 12 years!
Good academic, arts, and sports programs. There are opportunities to take college classes through Hawkeye Community College and Wartburg College as an upperclassmen, which is fantastic. Unfortunately, there is no weight of classes, including college classes. This school is very sports-oriented (for major sports like football, boys' basketball, and wrestling).
