College Community School District. College Community is a growing school district that serves approximately 6,000 students from Linn, Benton and Johnson Counties. The 137 square mile district includes the parts of southwest Cedar Rapids, the Cities of Ely, Fairfax, Shueyville, Swisher, and Walford along with surrounding rural area.
The district's regular programs are located on a 500 acre site on 76th Avenue in Cedar Rapids. This central campus site is unique for districts our size and is a source of great pride for district patrons. The Prairie campus consists of five elementary schools (PK-4), an intermediate school (5-6), middle school and 9th Grade Academy (7-9), high school (10-12) and two off-site programs.
Continued growth brings exciting changes! Voters in the College Community District passed a $49.5 million dollar bond referendum on February 2, 2016 to address enrollment growth and facility needs. Over a five year period, major work will take place at Prairie High School, Crest, Heights and View. Phase I work at the high school will take 3-4 years with construction beginning this summer. Phase 1 of the high school work includes:

1 to 1 Computing: Prairie has been committed to 1:1 computing since 2012. Students in grades 5-9 have Chromebooks and students in grades 10-12 use Apple MacBooks. We also have a 1:2 device to student ratio for our PK-4 learners using iPads and Chromebooks.
College Community offers a comprehensive educational program. Using the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), Iowa Assessment and teacher-made curriculum based formative assessments; district staff closely monitors each child's progress. Using that data we design instruction to insure that each student meets the district's standards-based diploma requirements and is prepared for the future as a learner, consumer, worker and citizen.
