Roland-Story High School is a fantastic high school. It's located in a small town called Story City in Iowa. I'm a freshman, and since the school is so small, you know everyone there. The upperclassmen were super nice to us freshman immediately. Roland-Story's school district is one of the most welcoming and nice schools there is. I can honestly say that bullying is not an issue at our school. The people who work and attend this school are all nice and respectful of each other. Although we have smaller programs at our school, those programs are amazing. The arts programs here have incredible teachers, and the sports coaches are encouraging and supportive. The teachers in the classrooms genuinely care about their students and are always there to help. Everyone in the community supports the school's events too. I feel so lucky to go to school in such a friendly environment. I love Roland-Story.

Roland-Story isn’t the greatest school one can go to, but it sure is up there. The teachers, administration, staff, and its students are all incredibly polite and stand out with their character. Roland-Story strives to promote their sports and clubs so nearly everyone is involved in one thing or everything. The teachers help by co-leading these sports and clubs and engage into the students lives by getting to know each and every student on the court or field and in the classroom. Even though high school food isn’t supposed to be your mom’s best cooking, there are moms in the cafeteria and they’re always smiling and cooking to the best of their ability and it’s actually really good stuff! The janitorial staff are so fun to talk to, and aren’t just janitors, but friends to many students. In the end, Roland-Story helps prepare their students to be well-informed and educated with the greatest character as they move from a small high school to wherever their future takes them.
I am currently a senior at Roland-Story. The faculty and staff really care about all of their students and show compassion toward their students. I feel the school can be more diverse but is an issue as Story City isn't that diverse either. Roland-Story has always been laying a foundation down for its students since kindergarten and helps with anyone that has questions on future education or present-day education. They are continuing to improve the safety features in our schools and are doing so because they care about the safety of us, students.
