A LOOK AT WHAT WE’RE
learning

Western Civ Class

This past fall, our Western Civilization class covered human developments from the earliest settlements, through the Greeks and Romans, and then we ended the semester with the medieval period. The medieval period (or the middle ages) is a long period that historians consider roughly between the 5th century and the 15th century (it's huge!). We got to around the 1300s by the time our semester ended and in order to gain insight into the "late medieval" period, we planned a medieval feast during which students were assigned historical roles of real people who lived from roughly 1000-1300. It was a great opportunity to focus on women at this time, since every female in our class (there are 8) was given a different woman from the time period, which can be a struggle since women are underrepresented in history, particularly the further back in time you look! We tried to do a few historically accurate things for the meal, but the main goal was to have the students understand their assigned historical figure and the connections they might have had to the other figures at the table. Aside from that, it was just a great chance to celebrate all of the hard work the students did all semester in this dual-credit college class!

Meet our principal

Kristian Einsweiler keinsweiler@wmcsd.org

My name is Kristian Einsweiler, and I am proud to be the principal of West Marshall High School.

West Marshall High School is conveniently located between Marshalltown and Ames, Iowa on Highway 30. We are recognized for our dedication to students, outstanding staff, and tremendous community support. We have a plethora of options for students to be involved in athletically and through our Fine Arts programs, and we are committed to student involvement. We’ve routinely been competitive in both athletics and fine arts with recent state tournament bids in Football, Cross Country, Girls Basketball, Marching Band, and Jazz Band. Academically our students are pushed by an amazingly talented staff whom settles for nothing less than the best, and consistently goes the extra mile for students. We also work closely with both Marshalltown Community College (MCC) and Des Moines Area Community College – Ames (DMACC-Hunziker) to offer college credit options and career academies to our student body.

The school’s focus on student academics, participation & involvement, and the general above and beyond attitude with students creates an amazing atmosphere for student success. We strongly believe that students who leave West Marshall High School are prepared for whatever decision they encounter outside our walls.

I look forward to our work at West Marshall High School this year and in the future. If you have any questions about our school, please do not hesitate to contact us at 641-483-2136 or through my personal email.
