Alumni & Friends brings together Council Bluffs Schools’ alumni, families, & neighbors through reunions and activities. It also serves as an information exchange on current happenings and exciting news in our Council Bluffs Schools community.
The network connects graduates, staff and friends of Thomas Jefferson, Kanesville & Abraham Lincoln High Schools in Council Bluffs, and is open to all supporters of the Council Bluffs Community Schools District - teachers, parents, students who attended any of our schools, and community members.

Historical School Building Map
The Council Bluffs School District has been in existence since 1864. Throughout that storied history, our alumni have attended a variety of different buildings. As part of the Alumni & Friends programming, our goal is to connect alumni to the school district. The map below is designed to capture that history and connect the “then and now” of the educational facilities. You will find photos of the buildings, the years that each served students, and a little bit about the how and why behind each building was named.
Please note: this resource is a work in progress and improvements and additions will be made along the way as information is gathered. Our alumni are gracious enough to share their history, memories and photographs, so as we receive more information we will be sure to add as appropriate. As you review the history and find you have information or photos to share, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to add to the resource.
To learn more about each school, select the box in the upper right corner of the map to expand the viewable area. From there, all of the buildings are listed on the menu on the left side, or click on each of the flagged locations. Buildings marked with an orange tag are from Council Bluffs School District history, and blue flags represent buildings that are presently serving students.
This resource will be updated as information is presented, so be sure to stop back and see what’s new!
