Winterset Senior High School
135 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Winterset Community School District, IA
Alum: My favorite part of going to high school in Winterset was the opportunity to take dual credit courses. I was able to transfer 36 credits into college, and that has put me so far ahead of my classmates. I am so thankful for the teachers that devoted their time to teaching this dual credit courses. Without them, I would be completely drowning in college classes. I never would have chosen a different place to go to school. The teachers and staff are completely devoted to helping the students be successful. Teachers help wherever they can to help a student be at their best. The small classes sizes is also highly beneficial to students because of the extra one on one time with the instructors they receive.

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.
