Oelwein High School
- Oelwein Community School District, IA
Senior: The Oelwein High School has allowed for many great opportunities for its students, adding new programs not only in sports, but academically as well. The majority of students will be able to find classes to fit their needs, not only high school credit, but also college credit classes offered through the NICC RAMS center, where students from surrounding districts also attend with Oelwein students, with several Oelwein teachers being the professors for the classes allowing for easy communication. Even though our sports teams are not the best, the fans and support for the events has continued to rise as the programs begin to become better. The school allows a lot of freedoms to its students, such as open campus to seniors, coffee shop, different clubs and activities, and study tables.

Alum: Overall, I had a great high school career here! It was everything I could hope for in a high school - the teachers are fantastic, and everyone is really kind, even across social barriers (such as jocks and band geeks). They also are famous for their great treatment of handicapped students - they often got to be homecoming royalty, and were treated very kindly by all types of people there.
My only complaint is that as a co-founder of the marching band, the school tends to not give much attention or money to the music program despite its outstanding record and awards won every year. Even when students got to travel the world based on musical achievement or the band went to state championships in multiple areas, there were no announcements unless we pushed the administration.
