“The staff at Tilford work hard to create a learning environment that allows all students to feel safe and connected to school. Through research-based practices staff has developed ways to differentiate lessons to challenge all students. We believe that through teaching, modeling, and practicing, Tilford Elementary students will show good character by demonstrating safe, caring, respectful, and responsible behaviors. We also believe that by acknowledging and recognizing students when they demonstrate those core values, we will promote continued positive behavior.”
– Kyle Reeve, Principal
SCHOOL HOURS: 8:10 am – 3:10 pm for bus students, 3:18 pm for remaining students
“This isn’t just a building to provide preschool for three and four-year-olds,” said district Superintendent Kyle Koeppen, “this is a facility that will make it possible for us to provide access to before and after school programming for children 5-10 years old that begins at 6:00 AM and continues until 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, and not just in Vinton. We will also provide the same before and after school programming at the Shellsburg attendance center. We believe this is a major advance for parents, for children, and for the wellbeing of our entire school community.”
Our elementary schools are ranked in the top 50 of the Best Iowa Elementary Schools according to U.S. News & World Report.
LET’S MAKE 2021-2022 OUTSTANDING!
