Pocahontas Area Middle School / High School
63 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Pocahontas Area Community School District, IA
Senior: While Pocahontas is very advanced in regards to technology, it struggles in terms of student respect and equality. Some teachers leave as soon as possible, one of which is nearly hostile towards students at times. Sports, while lacking in recent years, have been very good in the past. The arts are not well respected, and Pocahontas Area does not have a musical.
Pocahontas Area does, however, have one of the best mock trial programs in the entire state, having the second most number of state championships in the state (falling just behind Robins/Xavier). This program is a small home, and makes students feel very welcome.

- Newell-Fonda Community School District, IA
Senior: Newell-Fonda High School as been a great experience. I have been encouraged by faculty members to be more involved in activities and join groups of special interest such as National Honor Society, FCCLA, FFA, and was also a football manager for 3 years. With involvement with these groups it also gave me a chance to be more involved with my community by doing service projects and volunteering. Newell-Fonda High School has helped me to grow as a person and realize not only I am part of a high school community but a larger picture of OUR community.

Kirov Academy of Ballet
- Private School
- Washington, DC
Works Here: I have been working at the Kirov Academy since 2017, and have found the staff & students friendly. The students are very talented, even performing for a week at the Kennedy Center in conjunction with a major company! The teaching staff, both academic and artistic are professional, run an excellent program that prepares the students well for both companies and university placement.
