Our district has five elementary schools, two middle schools, one senior high school, and one shared alternative school for ninth through 12th graders.

The JCSD is the 13th largest school district in the state of Iowa and the fourth largest employer in Johnston. The school district employs roughly 840 people, which includes 433 certified teachers and operates with a general fund budget of 58 million dollars.

The district covers 40 square miles and serves the community of Johnston as well as parts of Urbandale, Des Moines and the surrounding rural areas of Grimes and Granger.
