General Information

  • Welcome to North Central Junior High where our teachers are highly qualified professionals committed to excellence in education. As one of three junior high schools in the Iowa City Community School District, North Central has been offering a variety of educational and extra-curricular opportunities for students in grades 7 and 8 in the North Liberty and Coralville area since 2006.

    We pride ourselves on challenging each student to reach their full potential. Students attending North Central consistently achieve at levels that exceed state and national averages. We build on student’s current abilities and help them develop the academic, social, and emotional skills they need to be successful in school and in life. One of our building goals is to have 100% of our students participating in a school-based activity that is outside the school day. There are opportunities for students who enjoy athletics, music, and academic clubs. 

    North Central’s staff is committed to the Lightning Code of being respectful, responsible and ready and we help students understand the importance of these attributes in their everyday life. 

    North Central is supported by dedicated parents, businesses, and patrons to provide the necessary resources that allow our students to excel. We encourage parents to join our Parent/Student/Teacher Organization (PSTO) which meets monthly. This allows both our community and faculty to come together to provide the best experiences for our children. Our goal is something for everyone. Please come visit us at North Central!
