We have a lot to celebrate in Waukee. Serving more than 12,500 students each year, we are dedicated to our pursuit of excellent educational opportunities. Our graduation rate is 98%! Waukee is the seventh-largest district in the state of Iowa. We are getting set to open our tenth elementary school in the fall of 2022. Our team of nearly 2,000 staff members put our students first every single day! We hope our “Why Waukee” series sheds a light on the amazing things happening in our district.
