Superintendent Message

  • Stephen Murley When people think about our schools, words like traditional and established come to mind, but also responsive, innovative, creative, and progressive. For over one hundred years, the Iowa City Community School District has been the instructional leader in eastern Iowa, across the state, and throughout the nation. 

    What makes the Iowa City Community School District so special? A talented and dedicated staff is the foundation of our success. Walking through the halls of our schools, you will notice the pride our employees take in their work. Everything we do is focused toward providing the finest educational opportunities for the children of our community. Expectations are high - for students and employees - and it shows time and time again in the recognition of our people and programs.

    Our community sets a high priority on the education of its youth. Strong, open communication and efficient use of tax dollars are cornerstones of citizen support for the District’s educational programs. Community partnership and input into our planning are key components of our schools’ success.

    There are many ways to measure the quality of education in a community. We feel confident that you will find that quality is the hallmark in each of our schools.
