My experience with the Davenport Community School District was very good. They care for each student and are willing to make sacrifices to help a student reach his or her full potential. In Davenport North alone many opportunities were given to me as well as my peers to assure my diploma is in hand the summer of my senior year. From keeping us updated in Sports and activities to always having a solution to a conflict, the district will always be somehere in my heart!

Our children both have graduated from Davenport Central and they both had a very positive experience there. They are well-prepared for college (one son is a senior at Iowa State and the other is a freshman at UNI). We value the diversity of the schools, the strong music and fine arts program , STEM program, the excellent teachers and admin. We are very pleased with our children graduating from Davenport Central. Central has a state-of-the-art performing center and swimming facility, best in the region. We highly recommend Central!

Though the schools I have attended have outstanding programs in not only academics, but outstanding extracurriculars as well, it is beyond obvious to notice the difference in drives between educators.
