Hi Iowa City folks!

We will be moving out there in about two weeks. Our daughter will be attending Borlaug Elementary in the fall, and I'm hoping to get some information and/or thoughts about the school. I know it is very new and the building and grounds look awesome, but I can find almost no info online on test scores, parent ratings, etc. The one online comment I've been able to locate seemed to be written by a very disgruntled parent who didn't like the principal much, so I'm discounting that.

Any information or impressions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Here is the online link for Borlaug Elementary. Perhaps someone in the school office, or if that office is closed, a person in the school district office can point you toward sources for the detailed info you desire.
Keep in mind that school in the Iowa City district is out or the year so the school district office may be your backup source here.

At the I.C. district site below, note the specific info regarding new students & their registration.

The Borlaug Elementary link will not load here for me but the site is easily found via an internet search.
Good luck!.

Thanks, atler8! I have been in contact with the school about registration, and we've spent a lot of time looking at the school web site. I guess I'm looking for more of an "insiders" take on the school...

I suppose we will find out for ourselves soon enough, though!

You might get some of your questions answered if you use the "contact us" link at the Borlaug PTO web site. I would attach the link for you but my office firewall usually prevents successful link attachment.

OP: In the upper right hand corner is the option, "Search this Forum." Click on it and write Borlaug. It will show you all comments regarding Borlaug School. They all look favorable. Good luck!

I don't really have any direct insight into the school. Good and bad depends a lot on what you're used to. Some people would say that even the "worst" schools in Iowa City aren't really bad by comparison with a lot of cities. I do know it's a beautiful school in a growing neihborhood and for as much as socio-economics plays in "school quality" I'd guess it must be among the better. So, that surely doesn't give you anything to be "head over heels" about but hopefully it helps you not feel anxious. Welcome to town!

Go Hawks ;-)
