The Cedar Falls School District has been a tradition of excellence in the community for more than 165 years.
Today we are the 17th largest in the state of Iowa, serving more than 5,300 students. As one of the largest employers in Black Hawk County, the school district has nearly 800 employees; full and part time.
Cedar Falls is a thriving midwest city of 39,260 residents, in a population center of 100,000-plus. The city is situated on the crossroads of interstates 20 and 218. Cedar Falls is less than a four-hour drive from Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, and Omaha. Commonly referred to as the Cedar Valley, it offers all the amenities of larger urban areas, but with a hometown environment.
As a school district we draw strength and values from the community around us, and the Cedar Valley is one of the greatest communities in the Midwest. It is home to great people, a thriving & expanding business community, and a family-friendly lifestyle.
To provide our students with the highest quality education, we embrace change as it represents the world our students will enter as they continue their life’s journey. To keep our students prepared, we emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and communication skills.
