  • Home School Look-Up

    The Iowa City Community School District is proud to present an online tool through which anyone can lookup attendance areas. To determine school attendance areas for a particular location, type that address into the search box in the top left corner. The system will auto-complete possible addresses. When you see the address you are searching for, click it. The map will update to show the elementary, junior high, and high school that location is assigned to. Each school will show a phone number and a link to the school's webpage where you can find more information about that school.
