The one thing I did like about Iota High School are the friends that I made but that's pretty much it. I would say Iota is between poor and average for its many faults. Many of the teachers are terrible and create toxic environments while not teaching a thing, and the disciplinary system fails to punish students that should be removed from the school, while being driven by favoritism. The food offered for lunch is downright awful. The sanitation of the lunch room, classrooms, and restrooms are nonexistent. I would not suggest parents put their kids in this school, but it is the "better" school in a big radius showing the tragedy of our public school system.

I have had a variety of experiences with Iota High School. I really think it is an amazing school. The teachers truly care about their students and they want what is best for them. I have managed to keep a 4.0 GPA because of the really good education system put in place at Iota. There are very few changes I would make. For instance, there needs to be stricter rules put into place and enforced. Iota is a small town and sometimes people get away with things because of who they are related to. This isn’t fair to anyone else. Other than small problems as such, Iota really is a great school.
I loved attending this high school. It is small and everyone knows each other. Many of the teachers make themselves available for extra help all of the time and always put their students learning first. The school and student body are filled with bulldog pride. The student body, as well as the whole community, is always there to support the clubs, sports, and activities that go on during the year. Being in the honors program allowed me to be surrounded by peers who shared the same passion for learning and encouraged me to achieve more at all times. I was able to make many life long friends, have fun, and receive an education all at one time.
