A progressive school district that is growing but in desperate need for a Second Language Teacher in Spanish. Don’t bother enrolling your child if he/she speak another language as their first language, they will send them to another school district after a family has already moved into the district. They hired mostly first year teachers with very little class time. They are not go cheap on their bus transportation and have new model buses which is a plus! They need to offer more electives though they have improved. The school district is very involved in the community. They also take prompt care of unruly students and pay attention for any bully situations and address it swiftly. Healthy breakfast and lunches are provided daily. School grounds, maintenance and janitorial are on point! Very well kept schools.

The compassion that the Meramec Valley RIII staff have shown my children has just been amazing. The after school SACC program has been a god sent! To know my kids are safe afterschool and not home alone is a blessing. My kids get a good healthy snack and get assistance with homework. This makes it so much easier to work outside the home and able to get to soccer and dance on time. We cannot say enough nice things about the TRuman SACC program they are wonderful and include us as family.
Our district makes each and every student feel like home. As they enter kindergarten on through 12th grade we care about each and every child. Our district is always searches to better our staff, students and administration. Our sports coaches are striven to make our student achieve scholarships if they can. We have a great summer school program to get our students ready for kindergarten. Each of our elementary sites has a SACC program for before and after school and a full day summer program for our families. We do such amazing things with our students her at Meramec Valley RIII - we would welcome any child and family to join us.
