I love my school. My friends are part of my favorite experience at this school at taking science classes is my second. Our school has had huge addictions since I first came here as a preschooler. They have built a new middle school and have added a new auditorium, weight room, gym, and wrestling room onto our highschool. It is a very nice school and I love it.
Review Underwood High School
My experience at Underwood Community Schools was great, if I could do it again I would do it in a heart beat. The school is unique because everyone knows everyone and we all support each other. I had the best time at this school, I made my best friends, and got great experiences.
The Teachers at Underwood Community Schools are wonderful. They helped mold me as the person I am today. They are all knowledgeable and interested in the learning of students and their personal lives. They have a great grading scale and are very personable.
