Bold New Vision



In Charles City Community Schools, learning is a Way of Life. But what does this mean?

We are thrilled to share this new video showcasing how our 6 Essential Competencies drive teaching and learning in our schools. Each and every day, we aim to develop the following in our students:



Learner’s Mindset



Critical Thinking

The video features Charles City students and staff, along with local business owners who speak to the importance of the Way of Life approach to building valuable skills and knowledge in students from a young age.

In practice, we focus on the process students use to gain the knowledge and abilities that will serve them well into the future. Here’s what that means:

It’s far more than doing homework and taking tests.

Students gain the knowledge and skills that will serve them well into the future.

We give students the freedom to try new things and fail.

We’re working to transform school from what it used to be to what we want it to be!

In short, the Way of Life concept is a key part of how we are meeting our mission: Regardless of who you are or what your story is, you can learn and be loved here.

As always, thank you for your support of our schools and the students we serve!
