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!

High School Senior: I changed schools before I began High School, and it was one of the best decisions my family had ever made. The curriculum that was given to me was harder than I was used to, but the teachers made learning at a higher standard very possible. In High School, I was involved in both sports and fine arts while working at a hometown bank, and my academics were very important to me. It was very easy to balance my busy schedule because of the amazing support of the activity leaders. Everything that I have learned and done in High School has prepared me for College, Graduate School, and the rest of my life. I would choose to go back to High School if I could because the experiences and memories were so great, I could do it all again!

High School Senior: Honestly, I wish I could go back, I think I could have tried harder in the classroom and being an athlete. Most of my favorite experiences has been in sports, but what frustrated me the most was the parent attendance at events. It always depends on what sport it is and how many kids are actually on the team. It has gotten a lot better through the years that I have been here and I hope it continues to grow.

Earlham Senior High School

- Earlham Community School District, IA
Senior: Overall, Earlham is a nice school. For our size, we do extremely well in extracurricular activities, but the classes offered are mostly state-required or agricultural. Unless you want to be a farmer, be a musician/artist, learn Spanish, study STEM (minus engineering), or English, you may have to wait until college to start studying your future career. The administration does all they can with its funding, but the district has room for academic growth. Lastly, the school culture is built on cliques, but we are small enough that different groups mix a little. Bullying is not as bad as other schools, but there are too many issues to say it's a healthy school culture. Though needing more diversity, a wider scope of classes, and less bullying, Earlham is a good school.
