Iowa City High School Reviews
Rating 4.12 out of 5 217 reviews
There’s a lot of diversity in Iowa city high school. There’s something to do for everyone. The teachers are very helpful, and care about your learning. If you don’t understand the topic or need help reviewing, they are always open to do so. Something I would change is the lunch length, or the organization. If you aren’t one of the first ones to get to the lunch line, you have a small amount of time to finish your food. Another thing I would change or add, is more diverse clubs.
I liked my experience at City High. My teachers were always looking out for my best interest. They helped me whenever I needed it and prepared me very well for college. I had also had a great time with thee extra circulars.
It is diverse, and has good teachers. It also has nice students. Renovations are underway, so the school is going to get even better when the 2021-2022 school year starts.
Best and most supportive teachers! Teachers challenge you academically and are super understandable. Prepares you for college.
I loved the friends I made at City High through joining clubs, sports, and other activities. The teachers/staff are amazing. However there are problems with gender, sexuality, and racial equality.
I hate to admit it, but I had a pretty good time at City High. The courses were engaging, and I found myself really learning. The teachers made me comfortable, and I enjoyed going to school on more days than I didn’t. It was memorable, I’ll say that.
Over all, it is almost a perfect school. Everyone fits in somewhere. The teachers also like to connect with students on a personal level.
City High has avery welcoming environment and the teachers truly support their students in the best way that they can. The guidance staff makes choosing classes easier and guides everyone very well.
Iowa City High School is fantastic. Every single club and extracurricular activity is given time and attention and all students, regardless of their interests, are able to find a place they belong. It is a very diverse school and teachers make it a priority to discuss difficult topics in class that make all feel welcome and teach students to understand their privilege.
I really like the staff and how much they care about the students. It is definitely one of the best public schools in the nation. I was there for my freshman and sophomore year. I’m my first year, I really liked how they started the year out by telling us that we were going to be treated like young adults. My second year was great because many of the teachers were fantastic. I was also in Robotics which was very fun.
Most of the teachers are very nice and helpful in every way. The non-teaching staff is power hungry.
I really like Iowa City High School because the teachers are truly involved the students. The teachers love to see all their students succeed in the classroom. I also like that the students are able to take college courses through Kirkwood. I wish class sizes weren't as large but can't always be helped.
Good school that tries its best to be inclusive and respectful and start new initiatives. Still a lot to improve and a lot to be successful on with those initiatives. Not too academically rigorous but fun and competitive curriculars. Ranges between involved students and students who don't show up at all.
Iowa City High School is a ver fun adventure. I go a lot of opportunities to interact with other students and to help other students have been struggling for a while. It's fun to get out of school to have fun with other classmates that you normally wouldn't talk to. There are a lot of events where you can find out and to understand your future profession would be.
I liked the number of elective classes available, including the large variety of art and writing classes, as well as the extra curicular activities available
Great teachers and classes that are good college prep. A very diverse student population. Teachers are very skilled in their fields and seem to genuinely enjoy teaching.
Some of the teachers are incredible; however, some are NOT. It really depends on the luck of the draw and the classes you choose to take part in. Most teachers, no matter their teaching ability, care strongly for the well being of their students. The environment is very caring and it is not challenging to find somebody like you. I have been here for four years and I think it was pretty good for high school at least!
