Sidney High School
42 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Sidney Community School District, IA
Senior: At Sidney High School, you will find many kids from different schools. Most of these kids came from somewhere else because of Sidney's academics. Sidney has one of the toughest grading scales in the district, but also some of the most caring teachers too. I can personally tell you that a lot of our teachers don't pack up at 3:22 when the bell rings. I've seen teachers leaving at 5,6, or even 7 o'clock. My first year here was my seventh grade year. When I walked in, instantly a senior was high-fiving me and showed me around to my classes. Our principal is also very friendly. He loves to chit chat with the kids and see how they're doing. Other than the food here, Sidney is the best place to be! (The food isn't that bad, our school just follows the guidelines for healthy school lunch.)

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.
