Best School District

ANKENY, Iowa (February 2, 2017) - Ankeny Community Schools has been named 2017 "Best of Des Moines" School District by the readers of Des Moines Cityview.  Every year, Cityview, central Iowa's weekly alternative newspaper, holds its "Best Of Des Moines" contest to honor people and businesses throughout the community.


"The Best Of Des Moines awards recognize the hard work of those who strive to make the Des Moines metro the great community it is today," said Ashley Sohl, Cityview Advertising Director. "With innovative ideas, strong leadership and unique skills, these people have made a difference — and our readers show their appreciation for that year after year with these awards."


Voting was open from November 2016 to January 2017. Thousands of voters shared their opinions on everything from the best places to dine, to the best places to shop.
The Cityview staff hand counts the votes and determines the winner and two runners up. Waukee and West Des Moines are this year's runners up in the Best School District category.
