Welcome to Iola USD 257

The mission of USD 257 is to “inspire all students to succeed”. In USD 257 we believe that education will prepare individuals to contribute to family, vocation, and society. We believe that all students can learn and quality education should be made available to all. We believe students should be continually challenged at their ability level and that higher expectations yield measurably higher results. We believe that students should be treated with respect. We believe education is a process rather than a product.
