The rich cultural diversity of the neighborhood makes it a unique and diverse elementary school within the Iowa City Community School District. 

    The educational program here incorporates an emphasis on learning the common core curriculum through experiential learning, basic skills instruction, and enrichment opportunities. Included in the program are activities that integrate multicultural experiences, the arts, technology, and a lot of reading. The staff is committed to building high self-esteem in each child, fostering positive, cooperative attitudes and focusing on the whole child.
