Welcome to Our Schools
Welcome to the Indianola CSD website! We hope this website will be a useful source of information for you and a showcase of what Indianola has to offer: “Proud Traditions…Unlimited Possibilities.”
Indianola CSD is a high achieving school district with tremendous students, staff, and facilities. The district is committed to ongoing professional development and to providing students the best possible education. Students are encouraged to get involved in the many clubs and extracurricular opportunities that are offered; and we hope that parents and community members will consider serving on committees or advisories, joining booster groups or PTOs, and supporting students’ educational and extracurricular activities. If you would like to learn more about our schools, arrange a tour, or share ideas or suggestions with me, please contact me by email at Art.Sathoff@indianola.k12.ia.us , by phone at 515-961-9500, or in person at 104 East Second Avenue.
I look forward to serving the Indianola Community School District’s students and staff and to being a part of all this great community has to offer. Join me in celebrating Indianola’s proud traditions and exploring its unlimited possibilities.

Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success
433 School Districts Across the U.S. and Canada Are Honored
Indianola High School is one of 433 school districts in the U.S. and Canada (and just six in Iowa) being honored by the College Board with placement on the 7th Annual APģ District Honor Roll. To be included on the 7th Annual Honor Roll, Indianola High School had to, since 2014, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.
