What People Are Saying


Let me begin with a little perspective to my comments. I’ve been a resident of the Humboldt community for over 4 decades. My two adult children attended the Humboldt Community School District graduating in 2011 and 2014 respectfully. Today, two of my grandchildren, grades 1 and 3, are also attending the school district. There are numerous things that stand out to me which has allowed the school district to sustain its level of excellence throughout the years. Several of which are Tradition, Commitment, and first and foremost an atmosphere of Family. I know that might sound like a cliché, much like the “Iowa Nice” phrase, but one that I truly believe is an accurate description of what is taking place within our schools today. Each and everyone of the students are a precious treasure and are treated accordingly. Especially considering the challenging conditions that our administrators, educators, staff, parents and guardians are dealing with in today’s climate. It literally takes a “village” to raise these children! I’m Proud to be a Wildcat! To be part of the Tradition, Commitment, and a member of this Family community!
