I have had a great experience at Irene-Wakonda. I do wish there would be more class options, but with a small school, that is hard to do.

The problem really is that the school is so small that we don't have much room for more clubs or enough funding for certain things. Everyone who is in a club or after school activity is seriously involved and they love what they do. Not only do the students get very actively engaged, the teachers/advisers do as well and it really helps with how well we do something and how much we enjoy it. Sports at our school are very important to a lot of people. I was in Track and everyone is very competitive but they are very fun about it and it really helps, especially at a competition. But, the school also spends more money for its sports than it does music. I really wish there was an art class. That would've been a great addition for a lot of students, especially myself, who enjoy art.
I had a great time at this school with all of my classmates. We were all friends, some more so than others, but that happens with any class. We always had fun with each other during prom, getting ready, preparing our float for the homecoming parade, track meets together, going out on the town and dining out. It was a blast. Our teachers had so many stories and jokes to tell us, even though sometimes they repeated them, we still appreciated them sharing with us their stories and making us enjoy the day better by making us laugh and give a smile on our face.
