The Northwest School District is one of the largest public school systems in Missouri (27th out of 562). The District has a long-standing tradition of educational excellence with students consistently performing well on state and national assessments.
The District demonstrates excellence by other measures including our strong parent support, high student attendance, a highly qualified staff, rigorous curriculum in all areas, extra-curricular activities, multiple support programs for students, information technology, sound financial standing, and facilities.
The District is committed to performance excellence in all of its operations. Through strategic planning, the District has articulated its key goals, objectives, and action plans into the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) document. It is future-focused, recognizing that the world is changing rapidly and those factors that brought us success in the past may not bring us success in the future. We are seeking to improve so that we can sustain our high quality performance.
We are proud to be a Leader in Me district. Leader in Me is a program developed by Franklin Covey that provides a leadership approach to learning, embodying a holistic approach to education that redefines how schools measure success. In the process, educators are empowered with the tools to teach leadership to students, creating a culture of student empowerment that drives results in academics.
