Waukee South Middle School
4 Best Public Middle Schools in Iowa
- Waukee Community School District, IA
Senior: Overall I had an amazing 3 years at this school. The environment, teachers, faculty, and students made it memorable. Being able to learn hands on, and understand what I’m learning to take it to the next years was crucial. Opportunities were endless here, there was always a way to excel as long as you wanted to do it, you could. No one ever discouraged me, only ever helped push me to become better and gave me the want to learn and do more not only for myself but for those around me and in my community

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.

Waukee Senior High School
8 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Waukee Community School District, IA
Senior: The staff at Waukee High School are extremely nice, interactive, supportive, and personal. The students are also extremely nice , collaborative, and everyone is intertwined. The hallways can get cramped during passing periods with people standing in groups or trying to cross paths, but we do have a significant amount of elective choices that other schools do not offer. The high school also offers a surplus of clubs that anyone can join based on their interests. Also, Waukee is energy efficient with the water bottle fillers that are installed throughout the school. Lastly, I believe that everyone supports everyone. All of the sports teams support other sports, even if it is not in their interest. Sports and musical arts also support each other by going to the other's games or performances.
