Learning Environment

Our modern and innovative Charles City Middle School is open. Gone are the 19th-century factory style classrooms.  Now students engage in a 21st-century learning environment. Our elementary schools keep class sizes small and offer individual attention to students to allow each student to flourish.

Encouraged to Excel

Our district-wide Talented and Gifted program begins in elementary school. Students are offered enrichment opportunities with proven success. Our 2015 elementary school Battle of the Books team earned 7th place in the statewide competition, and we qualified a middle school student for the Iowa National Geographic Bee. Advanced Placement and college level classes are offered at the high school allowing students to prepare for college and offering students to receive college credit without the college price tag.
