    The North Polk School system is more devoted to sports than class sizes. All bond capacity is used up until at least 2018 and the leadership has no plan for the future growth especially at the lower class levels. 26 kids per class in 1st grade in Polk City a city which is growing rapidly. The board members either have no kids in the district or older kids and do not seem to care about the youngest classes. They spent every dollar of bonding capacity on a new high school with a good chunk going to athletic uses while classroom sizes go up and classroom space is used up. I hope they sleep well at night.

    North Polk Community school district has great teachers who dedicate their time to see their students reach their full potential. Being a student of 4-years I honestly can not say I would have rather attended any other school. The students sports-oriented or musically-inclined all intermingle to create a strong student body. I do not recall of any situation where administrators asked a student to leave because they were afraid of the test scores. Everyone is welcome here. It is and will remain an excellent school.

    If I could give them 0 stars I would. This school is HIGHLY sports-oriented and seems to forget that students are not all jocks. Children who are not jocks are bullied and nothing is done about it by administrators. If a child is in special education anything and everything is done to get them out of the district so it doesn't bring down test scores.
