The Most Educational Opportunities in Iowa

While Ҵý is the largest provider of public education in Iowa, the district does not take a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching students.

Families in Des Moines enjoy an abundance of educational options from which to choose the best ones for their children.

The Office of Academics oversees a wide variety of programming throughout the school district, including curriculum areas, student assessment, advanced learning, English language learner services, counseling, preschools, and more.
