Western Dubuque Community School District Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Western Dubuque Community School District
This is a small town high school, so everyone knows each other, but more importantly everyone cares about each other. Western Dubuque is not a community, it is one giant family.
Great Athletics and ag program, but would like to see more advanced courses. Next year there will be only two AP classes, both in social studies.
