Welcome

The Saydel Community School District has an excellent tradition of fostering positive relationships with students, parents and staff. Our daily focus is to meet the unique learning needs of each and every student. We are a district of approximately 1,300 students and provide a small school learning environment for our students. We keep our focus on three non-negotiable goals:

  1. Student Achievement
  2. Enhancing Culture, Image and Relationships
  3. Maximizing the Use of Resources

We are a TAP school and believe improving instruction and providing a viable and rigorous education for all students is paramount. TAP, The System for Teacher and Student Advancement is a rigorous professional development model that is implemented daily and weekly through class instruction and teacher leadership meetings. Our instructional model allows us to have two Master Teachers and five Mentor Teachers per building to support our career teachers. Saydel Community School District is an excellent 3A school district conveniently located in the north Des Moines Metro area.
