I loved the staff, they really get involved with their students. The only downside was the students. Its a small town with not much diversity, so if you are different you are kind of singled out by the majority of your peers.

Maquoketa High School does not provide the knowledge I should have. I have had to learn multiple aspects by myself. But our school does offer many online college classes, providing me with online teachers that are very helpful.
The best thing about MHS is the opportunities we have with the Clinton Community College center being only a two minute walk away. The majority of seniors this year (including me) have most, if not all, of their general eds done.
