Education

Moline School District No. 40 offers the highest-quality education with student success at the forefront. With one early childhood center, 13 elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, a special education center and an alternative high school, the District continually produces students who excel both in and outside of the classroom.

With an enrollment of more than 7,400 students, educational programs are tailored to stimulate and accommodate all levels of a child’s ability. Opportunities and services include high school advanced placement, vocal and instrumental music, visual/performing arts, college preparatory curriculum, extensive athletic programs, vocational and computer classes, gifted and bilingual education, and peer tutoring. Student participation in the various extracurricular activities has produced All-State musicians, state championships in academic and athletic competitions, and representation in scholastic competitions at the national level.

As the Moline School District moves to the future, decisions will be based on the objectives identified in the Strategic Plan: Student Achievement, Facilities/Technology, Parent/Community Involvement, Communications, Continuous Improvement and Sustainability. In addition, there are numerous private schools that offer instruction for pre-K through 12th grades.

The city is home to Black Hawk College, a community college offering numerous degree and certificate programs as well as continuing education classes, and Western Illinois University-Quad Cities, the only public university in the Quad Cities offering both bachelor and graduate degree and postbaccalaureate certificate programs at the Quad Cities campus. Western Illinois plans to expand its presence in the Quad Cities by creating a riverfront campus that would expand service and opportunity for the entire region. The College of Engineering will be offering classes in the Quad Cities by fall 2009.

Other postsecondary schooling in the area includes St. Ambrose University, Augustana College, Palmer College of Chiropractic and the Quad Cities Graduate Center.
