Top 10 Reasons we love Ankeny Schools


  1. School Spirit: In Ankeny, we get to cheer on two teams instead of just one!  Ankeny is proudly represented by two outstanding teams, the Hawks and the Jaguars.
  2. Inspiration: Currently, there are over 36 languages spoken within the Ankeny Community School District.
  3. Excellence: We have developed our first Profile of a Graduate, this serves as the district’s North Star outlining what all students should gain by graduation.
  4. Challenge: Our students go above and beyond.
  5. Leadership: Orbis, Ankeny’s unique college and career readiness activities organization, engages teams of students in partnership with the workforce in solving real problems and contributing to the betterment of our community.
  6. Community: Our schools are committed to giving back to our community. All students in grades 8-12 participate in a community service day at the end of each school year.
  7. Support: We help each other out. Existing PTO groups always support the beginning of a new PTO group.
  8. Growth: With the exception of the 2019-20 school year, the District’s enrollment has increased every year since 1985-86.
  9. Volunteers: We work together, no matter where you live in town. In fact, we have one booster club that supports both high schools.
  10. Consideration: We are a quickly growing city, but pride ourselves in our tight-knit community.
