Iola-Scandinavia High School Reviews
Rating 3.98 out of 5 40 reviews
I like how close everyone here is, and how you know everyone's faces unlike big school. The food here however is not very good. But all the teachers want to see you succeed in what you do, and they will help you whenever you need it.
ISHS is a great school for a lot of reasons: athletics, academic support, and teacher accountability. But it also lacks many clubs and classes that I would have liked to see in my time there and also has no diversity. Drugs and vaping are a problem with a hefty chunk of the student body and bullying still happens even though it's not reported. I felt kept in the dark about a lot of options I could have taken regarding my academics. If someone in the counseling office or on the staff, doesn't think you can do it or looks over you, they don't do what they should to help you be as successful as possible.
Iola-Scandinavia High School is a wonderful school. I've learned so much though the different courses and I've made many new friends throughout all my years attending Iola-Scandinavia
Our school offers a very high level of stability and discipline. We have excellent teachers, and they put forth their best efforts to help make us successful students.
Iola-Scandinavia High School is an excellent school. It has teachers that are willing to work with you, and help you through any school troubles. There are a lack of clubs, and as far as budgeting goes we could be smarter with the priorities. However overall it is a great school.
I'm very impressed with the quality of teachers at a small school. School can be easy for my son and his teacher called him out for not spending enough time on his writing—he was hurrying so he could get back to his reading. She pushed him to work harder because she knew he could do better. I really appreciate this effort to make him work. Some teachers would have just let him off with an easy A. I think he is better prepared for middle school and high school after this year.
My overall experience at this school has been great for the most part. This school has made me the person I am today. My experience at my school has not been easy, in fact, it has been quite a challenge. I have been stressed to the max, and I've felt like I've wanted to quit, but these obstacles have made everything easier. When it comes to extra-curricular activities, I have had the best experiences of my life at my school. I love the small-town environment here and how close I have become with my friends and teachers. If I had to choose a school all over again, I would choose the same school because of the amazing way it prepares its students for future education.
All of my teachers are very friendly and approachable. They are always willing to help and want the best for their students. Each teacher has different methods when it comes to teaching and grading, but overall, I am very happy with the staff at my school.
