Attending Hiawatha Senior High has given me the opportunity to expand my learning in many ways. In my junior and senior year I was able to take additional courses in areas of my interest. The Hiawatha school district has always tried to go above and beyond the necessary academics to ensure that their students are receiving the best. I love the small class sizes and the enormous opportunities the school district provides for the students.

Hiawatha Senior High School as numerous teachers that care deeply about their student's and the education they are receiving. The teachers go above and beyond to ensure that their students understand the subject matter.
My experience at Hiawatha High school has been a fun four years. I have been in several clubs so I have a good insight into the inner workings of the school. I helped interview our new principle when she first got the job. I felt proud to be on the committee and glad to be able to have a say in our administration. All my friends and I play sports and are pretty close in and out of school.
