Dear Parents,

Welcome to Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico CUSD #3. On behalf of the Board of Education and myself, we appreciate your visiting our website. In 1969 Prophetstown and Lyndon formed a consolidated district with the annexation of Tampico schools in the 1996-1997 school year. Our communities share a community heritage with Tampico being the birthplace of President Ronald Reagan and the city name of Prophetstown derived from a Black Hawk Indian chief, Wabokoshiek, who had been named the "The Prophet".

Our well maintained communities remain true to the hallmarks of small town life while providing progressive services, highlighted by business and health care opportunities with colleges in nearby cities. Our focus on continued education with regard to No Child Left Behind is of utmost concern along with a safety oriented public school for approximately 1100 students ranging from Pre-K to High School. There are many opportunities offered to our students which are enabled with up-to-date technology. Our professional staff and technology enhance the education process by enabling a high school student to acquire 32 hours or more of college credit prior to graduation.

We are proud of the educational opportunities available to students and their families in Community Unit School District #3. If you would like more information about our educational programs or a tour of the facilities, please contact me at (815)537-5101. Thank you for your interest in our communities and the educational opportunities we provide for our students.
