Senior: Carroll High School has been an amazing experience for me. It gave me many opportunities in extracurriculars, class options, and a community with a very diverse and caring outlook. The only change I wish for Carroll High School to have is not such a strong importance on athletics. I agree that these team-building programs are essential for some high school students to grow and learn as people, but when other programs suffer (such as the drama department or even sports that are not as popular), it becomes a problem.

Roanoke Catholic School

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.

Ikm-Manning High School
- IKM Manning Community School District, IA
High School Senior: I've moved 14 times. I got into the routine of finding the people I knew that I'd get along with, and each school fell into the same category. They were all very cliquish, with their athletics, and artsy people, but then I started attending IKM-Manning High School. This school has been such a great experience, most students appreciate everyone's input, and everyone tries to get along. There is respect in most classrooms, and the ones with out is because the teacher is to much of a "friend". This school changed my thoughts about high school, it doesn't have your usual groups of people. Athletes, are in drama; drama kids are athletic, everyone gets along. It's refreshing.
