At the core of the Urbandale Community School District is one main goal—to advance learning. We are dedicated to helping students not only learn the material but understand why they are learning what they are learning. We know that every student learns differently, thus we adapt methods of instruction to better support the unique learning styles of all students. We offer a consistent, rigorous, and relevant curriculum that educates the whole child and aligns with the Iowa Core. The Iowa Core provides academic expectations for all of Iowa’s K-12 students. It does so by helping teachers take learning to a deeper level by focusing on a well-researched set of standards in literacy and mathematics, and essential concepts and skills in science, social studies, and 21st century learning (civic literacy, financial literacy, technology literacy, health literacy, and employability skills). Urbandale is a school district that brings learning to life for everyone!
