Goals & Beliefs


Maquoketa Valley will promote lifelong learning by providing a variety of teaching styles and using multiple forms of assessment in order to increase student achievement.


Learning: We believe that all students can learn, i.e.: learners are responsible for their own learning; learning is a lifelong process, and learning develops through a variety of styles in order to address a variety of needs.

Achievement: We believe student achievement must be measured by multiple forms of assessments (e.g. standardized testing, observation, demonstration, rubrics, portfolios, and self-assessment).


Education at Maquoketa Valley will be based on open communication, shared responsibility, and decision-making between parents, staff, students, and the community where all will be positive role models holding high expectations for all students.


Climate: Education is a partnership between parents, staff, students, and community in which everyone involved needs to model appropriate behaviors for students so they will be productive learners and able to adjust to an ever-changing social and cultural society.

Instruction: We believe that by utilizing a variety of teaching styles, the teacher will hold high expectations for all students in order to motivate each student to do their best. Moreover, the teacher will treat each student with dignity and respect, teach to the needs of each student enabling them to attain a high level of mastery.

Human Resources: We believe that Maquoketa Valley staff should be positive models who are respectful, supportive, willing to work together, and willing to listen to new ideas for the benefit of all students.

School Structure: We believe school structure should include open communication and shared decision-making.


Maquoketa Valley will ensure open communication through community, family, and agency involvement to facilitate each child's well-being while reaching her/his physical, emotional, and academic potential.


Community Involvement: We believe Maquoketa Valley cultivates a high degree of community involvement through communication and participation in all school activities.
