Boundaries and Maps

Boundary Information—Find Your School

Covering 36.6 square miles, our district boundaries are rather irregular, but generally lie:

  • north of Warren and Madison County lines,
  • south of Urbandale Avenue,
  • east of the Dallas County line, and
  • west of 63rd Street.

When we say community, we mean it!

Our district covers more than one city and includes:

  • West Des Moines
  • parts of Clive
  • parts of Urbandale
  • parts of Windsor Heights

This booming suburban area directly borders Des Moines, the capital city of Iowa, and is located at the crossroads of Interstates 35 and 80. Our community has a well-deserved reputation as an area with a vibrant economic base and quality of life.
