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.

Independence Junior Senior High School
- Independence Community School District, IA
Senior: Independence Junior/Senior High School resides in a small community, therefore everyone can get to know each other well. Teachers know their students, and students all know each other which keeps the community fairly tight-knit. The school spirit at Independence is impressive with big turnouts at each sporting event and other extracurricular activities. Because of the small size of classes, teachers are more readily able to help students when they have a question or are struggling. Classes are ninety minutes long in high school, which allows for teaching time and also study time for students to hopefully not have any homework. This school district is nice to be apart of if one is searching for a smaller community size.
