Our Mission
Taking the next step in education our Secondary School program allows students to expound upon their elementary education in new ways. Offering students the opportunity to learn in specialized interest areas such as industrial tech, business and computing, family and consumer sciences, foreign language and more. Students are given the independence to choose their area of interest and to enhance their learning experiences. Ensuring that all students have a well-rounded experience so that they are prepared to become competent citizens whether they choose to pursue higher education, the workforce, or other service areas.

From Our Parents & Students

“At North Mahaska there is small town, friendly atmosphere as you walk the halls. People treat each other with respect. It does not matter where you look, whether you watch receptionist, janitors, teachers, students, or administration you will see people treating each other with dignity and kindness.”

Robert & Tani Buchanan


“The appreciation I have for my time at North Mahaska only continues to grow. I enjoyed my time as a student, but it wasn’t until I left that I realized how truly great it is to be a Warhawk. The sense of community that I continue to experience as a Warhawk is unmatched, and it will forever be a part of me.”

Kylie Groenenboom

2012 NM Graduate

“I believe we have a close-knit community that supports a progressive small school. Students build lasting friendships with peers and faculty. They have the opportunity to participate in multiple extracurricular activities. Graduates are well-prepared for success in college or vocation and more importantly in this gig called LIFE”
