|Why Choose Republic Schools?
The Republic School District, located in southwest Missouri, prides itself on providing an excellent academic environment for its 4700 students each day. Known as a leader in student success, the district has a history of student performance that is in the upper echelon of public schools across Missouri. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education assigns a “grade” to all public schools in the state based on a 140 point scale. Republic School District’s most recent “grade” was a 97.9% as the district achieved 137 of the 140 points possible. In addition, when comparing state assessment scores to comparable Missouri districts, Republic ranks at the top of the list!
In addition to being committed to academic excellence, the district takes great pride in its strategic approach to achieving its mission, “Preparing Each Student for a Successful Future” through focus on community priorities. A full strategic plan can be viewed at republicschools.org/csip. The district reports its progress regarding this strategic plan annually.
One specific community priority found in the CSIP/strategic plan is growing student leaders. The Republic School District is dedicated to deploying the Leader in Me initiative across the entire district over the next five years. Currently, for the 2017-18 school year all five elementary buildings will be official Leader in Me schools with the secondary buildings close behind. We believe the focus on student leadership helps grow the “whole child” and instills confidence and life skills that will promote success far beyond their years in the Republic School District.
Another community priority that the CSIP/strategic plan addresses is the focus on implementing and embracing
technology to enhance the learning environment of our students. A plan to strategically get devices in the hands of all teachers and students called RepMO Ready was deployed in 2015. By the 2018-19 school year our entire school district will be either 1:1 or 2:1 (one/devices per one student) based on student developmental needs. The Republic School District prides itself on the rollout of this plan. It is exciting that districts across the region have sought out our implementation process to take back to their districts. To learn more about RepMO Ready visit republicschools.org/repmoready.
A few other accolades to mention include top rankings of our after/before school programs, STRIPES 360. This program has been commended for its excellence by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. In addition, Republic’s McCulloch Elementary is home to “Missouri’s Greatest School Nurse,” Nancy Leonard. The sky is the limit when it comes to student achievements and accolades! We have students who regularly compete at the State and National levels in athletics, FCCLA, FBLA, DECA and many other extra-curricular activities.
