Welcome to Maquoketa Community High School, home of the Cardinals! We offer over 150 courses; a wide variety of athletic, musical, dramatic, and extracurricular opportunities; and a staff of dedicated professionals. We are eager to develop our young people and provide direction for their lives while they are attending our school.

Because of the ever-changing needs of our students, we are constantly looking for ways to improve instruction. We want our students to continue their education after they graduate and to perform well in college, universities, and technical schools. We strive to support student efforts in every way we possibly can.

Maquoketa High School is proud of its tradition in education. It is our goal to prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead in their lives. It is our privilege to serve the students of our community.
