Our mission in Cedar Rapids is to ensure all learners experience a rigorous and personalized learning experience so they have a plan, a pathway, and a passion for their future.At Nixon, we work hard to ensure all children have learning experiences that will prepare them to be future ready.


Some ways we prepare our learners is through creating blended learning environments in all classrooms starting in kindergarten. Differentiated and personalized small group learning paired with online tools and technologies helps to support the work of our learners each day. Every child is given the opportunity to learn in the best place, at the best pace, and on a path that is specific to them.
