“I believe that the Davenport Community Schools is one of Iowa’s Leaders in Education. The skills that are taught to the “novice” learner are the skills that will resonate in them as contributing adults. Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, Physical Education and the Arts are the vitamins for a healthy mind and body. Each of these subject areas work congruently with each other as I have witnessed with my own three children. Students of diverse backgrounds have worked as part of the learning environment. Understanding cultures as a part of the learning structure only enhances the educational experience. The Davenport Community Schools offer a well-rounded solution to an ever changing society.”
– Phyllis Thede, State Representative, Former Secretary at Williams Intermediate, and Parent of DCS Graduates
