Does anyone have any information about the best school district in Iowa? Preferably in the CR area?

My family and I may be moving there soon, my husband will be working in Hiawatha.

My son is 10 months old so he's not in school yet, but i'd like to know because where we choose to live will depend greatly on the schools.

Thank you.

I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the CR school districts. I'm not terribly familiar with them but I've met people from Linn-Mar and CR and they always say great things about their schools. I've heard College Community is great too.

Welcome to Iowa!

Iowegian is right on. I don't think you really can miss with either Linn-Mar (Go Lions!) or any of the North side CR schools. Those areas will probably be the best fit for you, as they're closest to Hiawatha.

Be a little more choosy in looking at the South side CR schools. I'm not saying they're all bad, but just be choosy.

College Community is also a great district, hugging the far south side of Cedar Rapids. Good district, but a longer commute.

These district websites might help you:

Cedar Rapids Community Schools

Linn-Mar Community Schools

Do you really want to know a complete list of the best school in Iowa (even if they are no where near Cedar Rapids)?
