Resources for realtors and business recruiters
We value the realtors, business recruiters and relocation specialists in our community who help families make decisions about where to live and buy a home.
We put students first by giving families personalized information about our district, our educational programs and our schools, to help them make decisions about living in our thriving community.
These maps show boundary lines for the District and our elementary schools. Please contact Registrar Barbara Peterson, 515.268.6605, to determine the boundary school for a specific address.
View or print every edition of the award-winning Amazing Magazine, a quarterly publication from the Ames Community School District. The magazine highlights student and staff accomplishments and provides updates on District initiatives.
View our District-at-a-Glance page describing the benefits of choosing a district that gives students a personalized learning experience from their first day of preschool until graduation, that’s large enough to provide an internationally competitive education—based on programming and activities enriched by community connections and infused with a variety of cultures—and yet small enough for each student to find a niche.
Whether prospective families have children in preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school, or any combination thereof, we’ll put together a personalized tour of our schools. Families will see the schools, meet the principals, and meet a Family Ambassador who can answer questions from a parent’s perspective. Click on the link above, and we’ll work with your schedule.
Family ambassadors are parents and guardians of current elementary students who are committed to helping other families with information and support. They can help answer questions for prospective families from a parent’s perspective.
