Solon High School is in a small town of Solon, IA. At our school, we create an atmosphere of positive attitudes, self sufficiency, and determination. Every teacher works to better their school and the students attending it. In our small community, we have visitors come to school to help us plan our futures and prove to us that we all have the ability to succeed. In our district, we are #solonstrong.
Review Solon High School
I liked how invested our teachers were and thought that we had many educational experiences that many other schools did not. Our athletic teams were incredible but I think that it is important to remind students that academic achievements are just as important. This is coming from a former athlete so I have seen both sides of the spectra. The only complaint that I had was that the school dances were never that great. We need to let students dance in the gym or rent a place to go and hire a better DJ. Let them listen to whatever music they want and dance how they like. It is better to have them want to come than to not, because if they do not come then they will want to go out and party. That is the only thing I could see improved, but overall I would rate this as a great experience.
There are a lot of variety of clubs and organizations at this school that students can be involved in. For example, a few years ago we just added Archery to the schools sports program! There are always students who are involved in more than one sport, club, or other programs at Solon High School.
