Mission Statement
The Mission of Crete Public Schools, a diverse community of engaged individuals committed to the success of all, is to ensure learners have the character, knowledge, and skills to be respectful and productive members of a global society. Crete Public Schools will cultivate a culture where all are challenged, empowered, and supported to reach their maximum potential.


Crete Public Schools serves 6 rural communities, of which Crete is the largest city, consisting of over 7,000 residents. Major employers in Crete include Smithfield Foods, Bunge Mills, Nestle, and Doane University. The district, which maintains the highest available accreditation via AdvancEd, serves over 2,000 students from pre-K through 12th grade, and provides adult GED and English Language Learner programs. Key aspects of the district’s mission include developing respectful and productive citizens while providing support for their families and communities. The changing demographics within the community resulted in programs which now serve approximately 200 children through preschool services and over 500 students through English language classes. Students at the high school have the opportunity to take many different Advanced Placement courses and multiple dual college credit opportunities. World language classes begin in kindergarten and continue as electives in the high school.
