Welcome to Central Lee Community Schools! With proven success in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities, you are visiting one of the most well known and well-respected school districts in southeast Iowa.  The size of our school district (1100 students and 150 staff) offers the best of both worlds - small enough to foster close relationships, and large enough to offer a wide variety of curricular choices.  At Central Lee, our team of professional educators is committed to offering a challenging, relevant curriculum using research-based instructional techniques proven to increase student achievement.  Our school district serves several communities (Argyle, Donnellson, Montrose) that take great pride in the education of their young people.  These communities, in turn, support Central Lee Community School District through their financial support and by donating tremendous numbers of volunteer hours.

The mission of the Central Lee Community School District is to prepare lifelong learners who are independent thinkers, value themselves and others, and have the knowledge and skills to become productive citizens.  While we encourage all of our students to be involved in as many activities as possible, our primary focus remains the academic success of our students.  Studies show that a rigorous course of study (3 years of math, science, social studies and 4 years of English in high school) is directly related to higher probabilities of success in the workplace and post-secondary education.  With graduation rates of 99%, Central Lee Community School District is committed to preparing graduates who are well prepared to expand their abilities at institutions of higher education, or in today's technologically advanced workplace.

What we are most proud of is the character of our students!  Our students demonstrate a core value system  that reflects respect for authority, respect for themselves, respect for others, and respect for their school.  Please visit our campus any time or give us a call to ask about any of our outstanding programs.

You will find student achievement data under the "District Information" tab at the top of this page.  Look through data and understand why we're "Proud to Be Central Lee!"

John C. Henriksen, Superintendent
