From our Parents & Students

“I love that North Mahaska is a family. There are wonderful, supportive teachers/staff. The NM community embraces and supports one another. The caring teachers at North Mahaska help all students to succeed. I also love the rigorous and engaging curriculum for my children as they begin their educational journeys.”

Elementary Parent

“We also knew that the environment we would expose our children to needed to reflect our values and principles. So we talked to a few people and decided that North Mahaska was the place for us. It was a decision that we have been so grateful we made.”
