For a small school in a rural community Iowa Valley Elementary does a good job. There are not enough creativity based extra curricular activities. The principal is fantastic. I am not happy that there was not a mask mandate at the beginning of the School year during COVID pandemic.

Iowa Valley had a great atmosphere with great people and staff. The new principal has been doing a great job of turning that place around.
After I graduated my world changed completely. I went from working part-time, being involved in literally everything I could, and doing well in high school to college. I work nearly full-time, and the homework time went up to about ten hours a week or more per class. I am always busy will college, but when you add work into the mix it gets harder. I also have a parent who I live with who is supporting my food and housing bills, he is soon to lose his job, so I am considering getting a second job so I can help pay for more. I would love a scholarship, so I wouldn't have to worry about my tuition, or books for a semester. Any would be greatly appreciated!
