Iowa Falls- Alden High School definitely has its positive and negatives. Some of the positives are the clubs provided. From basketball to soccer, cheerleading and even an e-sports team. Also the staff will try their absolute hardest to make you feel included and safe. They are very understanding and willing to help. The biggest negative the school has is the levels of diversity. There is about 10% total number of minorities. And there we even had school on MLK day, due to the low number of diversity.
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.
