West Burlington Independent School District

West Burlington Independent School District

The West Burlington Independent School District is a school district in West Burlington, Iowa, and is home to the West Burlington Falcons.

Brief History

There have been a total of six buildings that could be called "West Burlington Schools". Fairview was the first, but was on the North side of Mt. Pleasant Road, and therefore, not in "corporate" town limits. The next was on the corner of Wheeler and Ramsey, and was around as early as 1888. It was later replaced by a two story brick school and was used until 1939 when A "Public Works Administration project" took place, and it was reconstructed. It was used as the only elementary building for students until 1956 when the present day elementary was started.

West Burlington Elementary School

West Burlington Arnold Jr./Sr. High School (formerly West Burlington High School & West Burlington Arnold High School) was built in three phases, the first beginning in 1966, and was finished in 1969. In 1972 the school was renamed in honor of Walter E. Arnold, a teacher in the district since 1931, and the Superintendent from 1957 until his death -inside school walls- in 1971. In 1997 a major renovation project was done at the school. The high school gym had the stage removed and a concession stand was put in facing the cafeteria. The Junior High wing was also added. This added nine classrooms, renovated the library, added a computer lab, added another gym, and added a 399 seat auditorium. The front office was also remodeled during this project.
