I have been attending Iowa Falls-Alden High School for four years. While I have made many great memories while I was there, the school's atmosphere and staff make high school less than enjoyable. The school's facilities are pretty nice, and you can tell the school puts a lot of work into them. However, many people can agree that maybe we should put more money into making our teams better instead of investing millions into new fields. Many other students, including myself, have noticed that if you are not a teacher's favorite, you get stuck in the back seat. Students have always mentioned this as a problem, and are only shut down by the staff. Overall, my experience at Iowa Falls-Alden High School has been less than great, but, while some of that may be my fault, the staff and school administration could do a much better job to create a safe and healthy work environment.

Attending Iowa Falls-Alden High has been a wonderful experience. The school has emphasis on not just having the teachers simply teach so students can get good grades on their assignments or assessments, but take an approach of actually having the student learn the topics of the class to the point where they have a greater understanding of it and can apply it to the real world if necessary. The environment is also a very friendly and safe for others to be in and will always see the school come together to support one another, whether it be for those who are in sports, to those in financial need, or for those who have suffered and need emotional support.
Hard to compare since it's the only high school that I've ever attended. Seemed to have an okay amount of extracurriculars for it being such a small town, though they could have been more diverse. It was largely focused on sports, which is great, but arts and other clubs are so important to have. Teachers were good. Kids as a whole weren't anything to write home about, you had some nice genuine kids and some bullies, plenty of cliques, like any school.
