Van Allen Elementary is home to 300 students in third through fifth grade, led by 45 full and part-time teachers and staff. We are not content with our students just being successful--we also want them to SHINE!

At Van Allen, we are a school community committed to:

  • High-quality teaching and learning grounded in the Iowa Core standards, with differentiated practices based on student need

  • Promoting a safe and encouraging learning environment where students can learn and grow from mistakes and also celebrate successes

  • Implementing research-based practices to promote lifelong learning, including Growth Mindset and PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) through the Charger Ways: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe.

  • Building partner relationships between students, staff, and families

We invite and encourage you to engage with us in our mission: Successful Learning for All Students. Contact us or stop in to visit, volunteer, or serve. At Van Allen, Together We SHINE!
