The North Cedar Community School District serves about 800 students in the rural communities of Clarence, Lowden, Mechanicsville, and Stanwood in east-central Iowa. The students in our four schools enjoy hands-on, student-centered learning that prepares them for post-secondary education and careers. Our students consistently score at or above state averages on math and reading assessments, and more than 80 percent of our students achieve test score results that are “proficient” or “above.”
For those of you who are not familiar with our district, you can find us in the rural areas of east-central Iowa, along Highway 30. Our district office is located in Stanwood, and our school district also serves students in Clarence, Lowden and Mechanicsville. Our four communities work together to raise the bright and ambitious leaders of tomorrow.
We hope you will take the time to get to know our schools and our district. We have so much going on within our halls – from outstanding academics to technology initiatives to exciting sports programs to wonderful extracurricular activities – to help grow our students into productive participants in the 21st century.
