graphicgraphicQuality education is something Iowans have always been known for and have taken pride in, and America's Hometown is no exception. Charles City offers numerous educational opportunities, all of which adhere to Iowa's high standards. The Charles City Community School District features three elementary schools (K-5), a middle school (6-8) and a modern high school facility (9-12). Charles City public schools are wired for success in terms of technology, with plenty of hands-on computer and Internet access, as well as a cable ‘loop' system from school to school which allows for high-speed data and video transmissions from building to building or to every school at the same time.

In a state known for its quality education, the Charles City Community School District actually ranks above the state ACT testing average in math (24.1 to 22.7), reading (25.9 to 23.3), science (24.7 to 23.0) and overall composite score (24.8 to 23.0). Charles City Community Schools also offer a wide range of choices and opportunities for their students, both inside and outside the classroom. From sports to speech and drama, newspaper to yearbook, FFA to the GRAMMY award-winning music program, extra-curricular activities at Charles City are ‘extra' special. In addition, the Charles City Community School District provides the Carrie Lane High School, an alternative school designed to help kids who leave school early for whatever reason, a chance to earn their equivalence diploma.

graphicImmaculate Conception School is a private, K-6 Catholic school operated by the local parish, while the Community Christian School is a private, K-12 school teaching a more Christian-based curriculum. There are a variety of pre-schools to choose from too, as well as the soon-to-open TLC: graphicThe Learning Center that will offer professional pre-school instruction as well as community day care services in a convenient downtown location. TLC will be part of a comprehensive ‘Family Resource Center' facility which will also house the Area Education Agency offices and Head Start program. America's Hometown has you covered for post-high school education too, with a North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) satellite center in town. With its main campus less than half an hour away, NIACC offers a wide range of both day and evening courses in Charles City on a regular basis.
