Dr. Jeff Hawkins


My name is Jeff Hawkins, and I am proud to be the principal of such an outstanding institution as Ankeny High School (AHS).

Ankeny High School is a metro-area and state leader, recognized for the achievement of our students both in and out of the classroom. Our athletic teams, bands, show choirs, and students in many other activities are consistently among the best in the state. Our academic programming and extra-curricular and co-curricular programming are sources of great pride for our community. Year after year, the AHS students earn well over 5,000 college credits while in high school by taking advanced academic programming. This gives them an opportunity to advance quickly in their post-graduate academic endeavors.

AHS utilizes a vast array of supports to assist our students. Beginning with a top-notch teaching staff who routinely go the extra mile for our students, AHS has a pyramid of interventions designed to support all learners. Combined with a sense of caring about their own education and backed by a supportive community, AHS students experience success both here and beyond graduation.

Now is an exciting time in the Ankeny Community School District. Ankeny is one of the fastest-growing communities and school districts in the state. AHS boasts a tremendous number of activities for students to be involved in, including competitive sports, bands and choirs, student leadership opportunities, clubs, and intramurals. We encourage students to find ways to become involved. Finding ways to connect more deeply with other students will not only enrich your high school experience, but prepare you for success here and after high school.

I look forward to another outstanding year at Ankeny High School. If you have any questions about our school, please do not hesitate to contact us at 965-9630, or I may be reached personally via the information below.
