Welcome to the new year from Superintendent Tim Taylor

Dear families and friends of Ames Schools,

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! We look forward to learning with our students this year. We wouldn’t create expectations for our students to keep learning if we were not willing to do the same. We’re constantly evaluating and improving our methods as we learn better ways to provide our students the attention, instruction, programs and facilities that will help them flourish.
