  • Use of “Iowa City West High School” Title/Name

    Over the past decade we have experienced an increasing number of “outside of school” athletic and activity clubs who refer to their team or group as Iowa City West High School team players. At times this has occurred with our tacit approval, and other times not. Due to our desire to maintain a close accounting of the use of our school title/name, i.e., fundraising and related issues, we will no longer approve any use of Iowa City West High School for outside group team names or titles. Iowa City West High School will only be used to refer to those teams and activities that are directly supported and sponsored by the Iowa City School District.

  • Message to the Community

    As we welcome students back for the new school year, we would like to take a moment to remind families of the commitment to equity and inclusion that the Iowa City Community School District holds. As efforts are being made by the federal government to crack down on immigrants and refugees in the United States, our responsibility to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for all of our students to participate in their education becomes more important than ever.

Principal's Message

  • Gregg Shoultz

    2020 Niche Best Schools

    West High has been a dynamic institution since opening in 1968, and I am very pleased to be part of the tradition of excellence that has been built here. To meet the challenge of educating more than 2,000 students, we have a fantastic group of teachers, administrators, secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodians, and kitchen workers who number nearly 200 strong. This document will help you navigate the services at West, https://www.smore.com/ncsfz.

    The administrative team is an outstanding one. My office is located in the West Wing, and I can be reached at (319) 688-1090 or by email at shoultz.gregg@iowacityschools.org. The main office, phone number (319) 688-1050, houses Assistant Principals Molly Abraham and Luke DeVries, and they have a great track record supporting students, parents, and teachers. Ms. Abraham specializes in special programs while Mr. DeVries coordinates many academic programs, including acting as our liaison with the Kirkwood Regional Center on the University of Iowa Campus. Athletic Director Craig Huegel can be reached at (319) 688-1055 for any questions involving our extracurricular programs. Dean Maria Martin works with me in the West Wing Office, and she works primarily with underclassmen, and Dean Justin Colbert works with the upperclassmen. Rounding out the administrative team are Junior High AD and MTSS coordinator Jeff Wieck and Career Center Coordinator Russ Johnson.

    OUR MISSION

    • Challenge each student with a rigorous curriculum taught by a diverse, professional, and caring staff
    • Maintain collaborative partnerships with our families and community
    • Ensure students become responsible, independent learners capable of making informed decisions in a democratic and global community
