Burlington Community High School
- Burlington Community School District, IA
Senior: I liked being a part of the many clubs and sports teams! The teachers made me feel comfortable in their classes. My coaches made me feel like I was a necessary part of the team's I participated on. I had a very good experience the four years I attended Burlington community high school. I have many good memories from attending Burlington community high school! My teachers were always available to help me when I needed extra help in any class. My counselor was an integral part of my school career as well. She was always available to work with me on my class schedule. I feel that I am prepared for the next four years in college because of attending Burlington community high school.

Fort Madison High School
- Fort Madison Community School District, IA
Senior: Going to Fort Madison High School was a great opportunity for me. One of the best parts is how accepting everyone is of others. There aren't "cliques" or obviously separated groups within the school. Everyone just melts together and everyone is friends. Fort Madison offers tons of opportunities for college education in high school, they offer about 7 dual credit classes, more or less. We've always had great school spirit. There's not a lot I'd want to see change, except maybe different teaching methods. Only a select few are old fashioned teachers. I want to see teachers more excited about teaching so that we, the students, can be more excited about learning.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
