Welcome to Prairie!

The College Community School District's programs are located on an 860 acre site on the SW side of Cedar Rapids. The central campus site is unique for a district our size and source of great pride. The Prairie campus consists of five elementary schools (K-4), an intermediate school (5-6), middle school (7-8), 9th grade center (9), high school (10-12), DELTA (9-12), Early Childhood Center, and two off-site programs. The College Community School District serves 5,800 students from Linn, Benton, and Johnson counties. The 137 square mile district includes the cities of Ely, Fairfax, Shueyville, Swisher, Walford and SW Cedar Rapids.

We take great pride in our parent and community support. This support and active engagement in our schools and district is high valued. We strive to develop close relationships with students and parents so that our students feel safe and connected. We take great pride in our Prairie schools which are made up of great staff, high performing students, supportive parents, and community members who value the importance of a quality education. In addition, the support of our community through the passing of a bond referendum has allowed us to expand and remodel our current buildings, built a new 5/6 building which opened in the fall of 2023, and has allowed for the renovation of the former Prairie Creek building for the new 9th Grade Center and DELTA which will open in the fall of 2024.
