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 four non-negotiable goals:

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

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.

Saydel Students Attend RISE Conference

Saydel Students Attend RISE Conference

Saydel Student Government members Breanna Leach, Megan Ford, Sophia Barton, Landon Leach, Marissa Ramirez, and Taylor Perry participated in the RISE 2017 Conference on Nov. 4. There were two student guest speakers and three guest poets. Students also attended break-out sessions. Our Student Government members were able to present their "Shoe Box Shuffle" activity in one of the break-out sessions. The conference was wonderful and everyone had a great time. They met new leaders in the state and spent the day acquiring leadership skills and strategies.

Woodside Students Experience JA BizTown

Fifth grade students from Woodside Middle School enjoyed participating in JA BizTown recently. The program combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to this fully-interactive simulated town facility. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.
