I like that we have an internship class where we are able to experience a career of our interest and see hands on what that career will be like. The administration has changed a little bit but they are making it a better school with drug testing and academic privileges, such as if you have good grades then you get incentives. I would like the school policy on vaping/tobacco to change because it is not enforced as much and I would like the food to change, there is more food wasted than ate.

Iola High School is a pretty average school. The staff there care about you and your grades. The teachers try to make sure that you know how to do their work and help you if you ask. There are many different clubs and sports that you can join. There are a few areas that they can improve on, but overall Iola High School is a great school to go to.
I liked how close everyone was, everybody knew everybody and it was really comfortable. The teachers need to be harder on students, students walk all over teachers and we barley learn anything.
