The Des Moines Schools Home Instruction Program is an alternative K-12 educational program open to all families who choose to home school their children. 

The Home Instruction Assistance Program started in 1984 as a result of parent requests.  It began with one teacher and fifteen students.  We now have nine supervising teachers and serve over 380 students. 


The Des Moines Home Instruction Program Office Hours are:
Monday through Thursday 8:00am-4:00pm
Friday 8:00am-3:30pm

Please call 242-8490 to confirm someone is in the office - if our secretary is ill or has a meeting, there may not be anyone in the office until she returns.
