During my four years at Iota High, I have learned many things. I have learned about the faculty, students, and how lucky we are to be at Iota. There is so much that my school has to offer that others do not. We have many organizations and we are constantly adding more to get everyone involved. Our sports are constantly improving thanks to our lovely coaches who do everything they can to make things happen. Our school would not be what it is without the love and support of our little town. No matter if we win or lose, they are always there to back us. I wouldn't change anything about my school. We are constantly growing because people always want to come to Iota.

Iota High School is a very nice school academically and the teachers were very nice. I learned many different things during high school that will help me further my studies as a college student. If you involve yourself with what is happening at school, you will have a better experience. The only problem was there wasn't much diversity among the students there.
While attending Iota High school I have concluded some very straight forward ideas about the school. While there are very few teachers who I have come to admire and trust in their ability to teach, most of the teachers at Iota High are just plain terrible. There are countless instances I can recall of teachers giving up on lessons and moving on, or only catering to what the students wanted, which was to skip the lesson and have a free class period. Now there are one or two teachers at Iota High that I find are the very definition of what a teacher should be. However, I believe most of the faculty at Iota are not very good.
