15 Parent Reviews for Iowa City High School

Easily one of the best public schools in the country. Their standardized test scores are head and shoulders above other high schools in Iowa as well as throughout the country. Their concert band has won two Grammys, and the teachers are truly the cream of the 'One-Room Schoolhouse' State's crop.
