The North Scott Community Schools District's instructional program is aligned to the Iowa Core Curriculum adopted by the Iowa Department of Education. At North Scott, students engage in a standards-based, purposeful education that will prepare them to be career and college ready. Their learning experience includes a variety of authentic tasks, meaningful topics, and diverse viewpoints. Teachers work collaboratively in a continuous cycle of refinement to set high expectations and use best practice to meet the unique needs of each student.

We commit to creating a culture of collective efficacy for our teachers in which they feel empowered to make decisions based upon the best interest of their students; grounded in authentic learning tasks and opportunities that promote transfer across multiple contexts.
