The US News and World Report recently released the rankings of all K-12 schools across the nation. The Maquoketa Valley School District achieved very high rankings for their schools. The MV Elementary School ranked #4 in Iowa, the Middle School ranked #10 in Iowa and the MV High School ranked #6 in Iowa.
These high rankings are a tremendous tribute to the dedication and hard work of all of our PK-12 faculty at Maquoketa Valley. For many years, there has been a continuous effort to improve the quality of our teacher’s instruction and educational performance from our students. These results indicate that our students are doing very well and we are very proud of our rankings. We also know that there are always areas to improve. We will continue to find better ways to reach all of our students and have them achieve at higher levels of success.
According to US News, the rankings used the same methodology for all included grade levels. The rankings were based on the number of students who were proficient on the math and reading/language arts assessments and how these results compared in context of the socioeconomic demographics. The top-ranked schools are high achieving for all of their students.
In 2020, the Maquoketa Valley Middle School was nominated as a National Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education. This is another tribute to the hard work of the students and staff at Maquoketa Valley. Our community can be proud of these awards and know that our school district will continue to hold high expectations of student learning at Maquoketa Valley.
Sincerely,Dave HoegerMaquoketa Valley Superintendent
