Mount Ayr Community School District strives to create excellence in education. Mount Ayr Community School District encourages our students to be responsible, respectful and productive citizens of the world.

In partnership with families and community, Mount Ayr Community School District will provide a caring and creative environment where all students are encouraged to reach their full social, emotional, ethical, physical and intellectual potential through academic and extra curricular activities.

We Believe
  • all people can learn.
  • each person has value and worth with unique needs and abilities.
  • the school community should model the characteristics of fairness, caring, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility and citizenship.
  • the school should provide the broadest educational opportunities possible to every student.
  • all patrons of the district should have high expectations and commitment to excellence in education.
  • students should be well prepared for the world in which they will be living and working.
  • for the education process to be successful, there needs to be a family, school, and community partnership.
  • the creative use of technology is essential to all students to enhance the learning process for their future.
