Western Dubuque Community School District Reviews

The Western Dubuque Community School District is a very inviting and family- like place. Our school district is unique because it contains two separate high schools. I attend the smaller high school in the district, Cascade High School. Although the two school are split, the administration does a fantastic job making it feel as if both schools were one big family. Nevertheless, Cascade High School also has its own strengths separate and unique from Western Dubuque. Three years ago, Cascade High School built an outstanding new gym, wrestling room, and music room which has contributed to an overall better athletic and fine arts program within the school. Additionally, each and every teacher at the high school is dedicated to the students and their success.

The aspect I love most about Western Dubuque Schools is that teachers really take the time and effort to help their students get better. Throughout my years of school, I have always gone to a Western Dubuque school and I think it is for the best. The teachers attempt to teach kids how to be kind and how to be creative and work and think outside of the box. The one thing I think should be changed is how bullying is not a major aspect touched on. Being who I am, many people do not like me and have bullied me from a young age. Every time I ever said something, the teacher always looked at me and blamed me for it instead of telling the other kids why bullying is wrong.
Throughout my schooling within the district, I achieved great academic success. Not everything was perfect but I had an overall great experience.
