About GCSD

Welcome to Glenwood Community School District: Proud Past, Successful Present, Growing Future! 
In partnership with our communities, GCSD staff members are committed to developing and encouraging students as they go after their goals. Throughout their education, GCSD students learn to solve problems creatively, work together with others, communicate effectively and act responsibly. Through academic achievement, community service, and extracurricular involvement, they become capable citizens and lifelong learners.
Located in southwest Iowa, approximately 20 miles southeast of the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, we foster the development of more than 2,000 students from preschool to 12th grade on five campuses. We are also proud to bring communities together: Glenwood Community School District serves students and families from Glenwood, Mineola, Silver City and Pacific Junction.
