Welcome to the Downtown School website, and thank you for taking time to learn about our school.  It is my pleasure to be a part of Des Moines Public Schools and serve the children and families of the Downtown School.

The Downtown School students thrive in multi-age classrooms and demonstrate their learning through authentic project based learning.  Our teachers facilitate student learning and stop at nothing to ensure all students are growing.  The Downtown School is supported by highly engaged parents who value what research has shown is best practice for children.  As you peruse our site let us know if you have questions or if you would like a tour of the Downtown School.
