Message from the Principal
At Denison Elementary, we have an outstanding staff who enjoy working together to provide the best for our students. Our teachers receive some of the best professional development opportunities in the state, and our school continues to serve as a leader for others to follow. Our Denison Community Schools are recognized as some of the best schools for many reasons.
Denison Elementary has been recognized with the Iowa School of Character Award for being a lead school in Character Education. In January of 2016, Denison Elementary was honored with the state’s Breaking Barriers Award. This award recognized our students for having some of the highest achievement scores on the Iowa Assessments in Reading, Math, and Science over the past three years. Even the Governor of Iowa, Terry Branstad, made a special trip to our school in September to learn more about why our school is succeeding at such high levels. Through the diversity of our talents, experiences, and resources, we can provide your child with a special and unique educational experience that will best prepare them for an ever-changing world.
More than anything else, our people make the difference at Denison Elementary. As parents, you will entrust others to make a tremendous impact on your child’s future. We embrace this great responsibility and the impact we have as educators and role models. Together, we will prepare our students to be successful citizens who value our school motto: “Be responsible, do your best, and help the rest!”
