District Info

Welcome to Maquoketa, a community of approximately 6000 people, located 30 miles south of Dubuque, IA, 35 miles north of the Quad Cites (Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, Rock Island, IL, and East Moline, IL), 50 miles east of Cedar Rapids, IA, and only three and a half hours west of Chicago! We are right in the middle of it all!

We feel that we are just the right size… we can offer students more opportunities than a very small rural district yet we are able to get to know our students individually and work with them on a more personal basis. We are a 3A district and have been recognized for academic, athletic, and fine arts accomplishments.

The Maquoketa School District serves about 1,333 students in our four buildings, which consist of two elementary buildings, one middle school, and one high school. After sixth grade, we also serve students from Sacred Heart Elementary School in Maquoketa and from Delwood Elementary – a neighboring district. We also serve ninth through twelfth-grade students from Andrew Community School District.

Dedicated to Excellence

One of the strengths of our district is our staff. The staff of the Maquoketa Community Schools are well-trained, experienced, and committed to lifelong learning.
