East Sac County Elementary – Wall Lake
Wall Lake, IA 51466
Welcome to the website for East Sac County Elementary, serving students in grades pre-K through 4 in Wall Lake and Sac City, Iowa. East Sac County Elementary is a community of about 375 learners representing a wide array of ages and abilities. In addition to our pre-kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms, we are also home to a state wide voluntary preschool program. The diversity of our student body makes East Sac County an exciting and welcoming place to learn and grow.
Providing our students with a solid foundation for the rest of their lives is our priority. Our preschool teachers work closely with other grade-level teachers to ensure they are preparing our youngest learners for success. Teachers at all of our grade levels are highly-qualified and work hard to offer our students personal and individualized instruction.
Making children the center of all decisions provides a framework for our charge. We believe that positive and caring relationships are important to student success. Supporting evidence of our love for working with children can be seen throughout the school and in each and every classroom. Last year East Sac County Elementary School was the only school in the State of Iowa to receive the Positive Behavior Intervention Supports, Paramount Award.
East Sac County Elementary is diligent in monitoring each student throughout the school year. Our progress monitoring, which begins in the fall, has been very successful in identifying areas where students may need extra assistance. It has also been a key component in our increasing scores on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). The 2010 ITBS data showed considerable gains in the areas of reading and math. Those gains can be attributed to the overall improvement in the culture at both elementary buildings. Teachers and support staff have made considerable efforts to create a caring and quality learning environment for all students.We are excited to share with you the many outstanding educational experiences we have to offer.
