Johnston Senior High School
#3 Best Public High Schools in Des Moines Area
- Johnston Community School District, IA
- Rating 3.72 out of 5 328 reviews
Alum: Johnston High school did a very good job at keeping students involved and having fun. the teachers and staff were very caring, they really care about their students and want to see them exceed in everything possible and will go out of their way to make sure that you reach your set goal. There were some things I wish they would have done better on, Johnston high school has a very low minority rate so the school is predominantly white, I really wish they would have made more of an effort to teach and show everyone's culture and got the students involved in it. that is the only thing this school lacks of. this is a fantastic school!

North Polk High School

- North Polk Community School District, IA
- Rating 3.84 out of 5 94 reviews
Senior: My experience at North Polk High School has been very fulfilling and enhancing to my life. Eve since i moved to the district, I felt right at home! The smaller, rural structure of the school makes school life less chaotic and more personal. The teachers are very motivated in their work, and coming from a student's point of view, they are continually striving to make connections with their students and build relationships that will last throughout students' entire high school career. The classrooms incite a much needed environment full of laughter and excitement which really helps students like me when it comes to over-stressing and worrying about school. North Polk has been an amazing place for me to continue my preliminary education, and has helped me as I have began to transition into my last year of high school, guiding me towards what steps I need to take and what path is the best for me!
