About Penn Elementary

Built in 1961, Penn Elementary School was the first Iowa City Community School District facility built in North Liberty. Over the past 50 years, though, the school, which was intended to serve 300 students, it has grown to more than 500 students. It continues to grow as North Liberty is developed and currently serves 570 students. Due to the longstanding nature of the school in North Liberty there is a lot of pride in the community around, Penn Elementary.
