    "I attended Southeast Polk for my elementary education and all through middle school and high school. This school district has so much to offer, there are great teachers on staff here as well. I was to be an elementary teacher, and that is because of some of the teachers I had during my time at Southeast Polk. I would love to come back and teach at Southeast Polk when I graduate from college."

    "I like how most of the teachers truly care about your futures and keep you college ready. I would like to see the food be of better quality and the discrimination against females and LGBTQ students to go away."

    "My experience in Southeast Polk High School was interesting. The teachers here are wonderful and the classes that are offered are pretty good. What I liked about this school is that you can talk to your teachers normally a lot of the times. Get close to them and be more friendly. What I would like to see changed is the schools atmosphere. On average, there is a fight in the school one a month, there are a lot of kids who hate each other and there is a lot of stress put onto the kids. What would be nice if the administration weren't so cautious of what they do, the students are more wild then needed to be and they need to be disciplined when they are wrong. Parents are too sensitive sometimes, and that is what causes the administration to not be able to do much. But those are just my opinions."

    "My favorite experience at this school was the teachers. My calculus teacher would help me outside of the classroom to understand the material."

    "At a big school, I expected to just be another number, but it was the exact opposite. Teachers really got to know their students and it was a great experience."
