Scattergood Friends School:
Located in West Branch, Cedar County in southeast Iowa, Scattergood Friends School co-educational boarding and day school has provided students in Grades 9-12 with a college preparatory education with AP courses, SAT and ACT, since 1890.
Scattergood is located about four hours from Chicago and Omaha; five hours from Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Kansas City, and St. Louis; and seven to ten hours from Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Detroit.
The school's 140-acre campus is located twelve miles east of Iowa City and consists of a 27-acre main campus and a 48-acre pond and prairie nature preserve. The 65-acre farm includes an organic vegetable garden, beehive and livestock.
The main campus includes several buildings with a library, classrooms, darkroom facilities, a wood shop, science laboratories, and an art building with ceramics, stained glass and drawing studios. The entire campus is connected to a high-speed wireless connection which allows students to carry their school-issued laptops to almost any location on campus and work on school assignments or check their email.
Scattergood’s unique status as a boarding school allows a students to gain experience in many areas. We provide five day and full boarding (including weekends) options. Students share dorms in groups of 25, hang out in the dorm or student lounge, and spend time with their roommates.
In the course of one weekday, a student will sit quietly in Collection, attend classes, be part of a cooperative work crew, exercise their creativity in an art project, take part in physical education, eat meals with their friends and teachers, prepare for their next day's classes etc.
In addition to this, some days offer student or community meetings and special events such as presentations from visitors. Flowing through all these activities is the sense of community that comes from living and learning together.
