Superintendent’s Office

Welcome to the West Des Moines Community Schools. WDMCS is a great place for students to learn and grow, and it is an honor to serve as your superintendent.

Our vision is to be a caring community of learners that knows and lifts every child. We commit to knowing each student as an individual, understanding and honoring the uniqueness of each person, and helping each student find where they belong in our district.

Our goal is to empower our students to explore their interests and achieve their potential through countless excellent opportunities, a personalized education experience, and a caring, dynamic community of educators. During my nearly 20 years in the district, I have seen our school community come together to help our students achieve great successes. This strong collaborative spirit is matched only by the dedication to making all decisions based on what’s best for students and student learning.

As your superintendent, I am committed to making this happen through continued support of our district mission, vision, and guiding principles. I welcome open and honest dialogue and will listen to the community so the best decisions can be made for our students. Each student and family will have a voice in our district.

I want to thank you for the trust and support you give our district and children as we continue to foster an innovative spirit and inspire success throughout our district. I wish you an educational journey filled with great success and great learning. Welcome to the WDMCS!

Lisa Remy, Ed. D.
