Crime & Safety
What I like about the city of Waukee is that everyone is connected in someway. Also, Waukee has been recently named as the number one school in Iowa. Waukee is very safe and has a lot of resources available. Sports and performing arts in Waukee are also very successful, as we have gone to state several times, and have won many awards. Academic wise, our grades, scores, and overall outcome is greater than the state's. Overall, the city of Waukee contains talent in sports, performing arts, and academics, the area is very safe, and this community is extremely family friendly.
I would definitely move here again even though it was not my choice in the first place because I was only four. So obviously my parents made the decision to come here from where we lived prior to here. I think this area is awesome. I would think that it compares just fine to any suburb of the capital city across the country. I see this area in 10-15 years, maybe even sooner, flourishing. There was just recently an interchange put in that connected my town to the interstate so obviously the city and the state are anticipating a rise in population on top of what already seems to be occurring.
It has a great neighborhood feel. It's close to the Elementary School, middle school, and high school. The area is super family friendly and new families are moving in all the time. Sports are huge and are in the top class of the state. It is growing rapidly in population and business.
