Sigourney Junior/Senior High School
136 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Sigourney Community School District, IA
Senior: There are many good opportunities for college readiness that you can take. These classes are a very good way to get a head start on college credits while there are essentially free. There is a good variety of sports and activities as well while I would like to see one of my favorite sports added to the list of extracurricular activities which is Soccer. Some of the things the school could work on would be to have them reach out to the kids who are really struggling and can't seem to do well. They may push it off but persistence is key to success. That is what I like and would want to change at Sigourney.

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.

Alum: I enjoyed the teachers and the variety of classes available. The only thing I did not like was the time periods we had to go from class to class. Sometimes it was not enough time.
