Independence Junior Senior High School
- Independence Community School District, IA
Senior: Independence Junior/Senior High School resides in a small community, therefore everyone can get to know each other well. Teachers know their students, and students all know each other which keeps the community fairly tight-knit. The school spirit at Independence is impressive with big turnouts at each sporting event and other extracurricular activities. Because of the small size of classes, teachers are more readily able to help students when they have a question or are struggling. Classes are ninety minutes long in high school, which allows for teaching time and also study time for students to hopefully not have any homework. This school district is nice to be apart of if one is searching for a smaller community size.

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
