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
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!"
