My experience at Iowa Falls has been about average. It wasn't terrible but wasn't amazing. What I liked about the school is that the administration and staff are constantly making effective changes to the grading system and curriculum. The administration seems supportive of opportunities for positive changes. However, it is also a negative about the school because all four years, I never felt like I was in a stable environment. Everything was constantly changing making it hard to learn knowing that everything will be different in a year. I feel the teachers are kind, but lack student connection. There is little effort being made to form those positive relationships. Another negative is the lack of use of technology. Although we have Apple laptops, we are limited to a few websites on Google and have basically never been taught about any other programs. Overall they are taking steps to improve as a school and district which I am proud of.
I had a great experience at my high school. I stayed involved in lots of activities. I'm thankful my school had an abundant amount of activities and variety. It was nice going to a small school, because I was able to be involved in many activities even if they interfered once in awhile. My school went to standard grading hoping to prepare us for college. I hope it turns out well and actually works. It would've been nice if I learned better ways to learn instead of just getting a good grade.
I love how small the graduating class numbers are. With only 100 kids in my class I am able to have more of a one on one learning with my teachers, if I need help I am always able to receive it. What I hate about the school also goes along with the graduating class numbers. Having 100 kids in your grade means you know everyone, this can become a problem. These same kids I have been with since starting school. Knowing everyone and being together for many years can create a bullying problem, which frequently happens. Our school is also not very good with dealing with bullying.
