Williamsburg Junior/Senior High School
33 Best Public High Schools in Iowa
- Williamsburg Community School District, IA
Senior: My experience at Williamsburg was really great. Some of my favorite things about high school were the teachers, the sports, and all the technology. The teachers really took an interest in me and wanted to get to know me. In a smaller class, you get to have a lot of one-on-one time where you really get to learn. Sports were really fun and all of the other activities offered. I participated in basketball, golf, DECA, NHS, and SOAR. Also the laptops they offered helped me learn in a way that was set up for me. I enjoyed the technology in the classrooms. The only thing they could improve on would be getting me ready for college. A class for scholarships and applications to colleges would be really helpful. But overall, a great school.

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.
