Excellence in Academics
The Waynesville R-VI School District consistently performs strongly within the Ozarks Conference in terms of academic achievement as measured by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on the Missouri Assessment Program exams.
The district serves approximately 5,800 K-12 students and approximately 375 Pre-K students. In addition to our regular PK-12 programming, the Waynesville Career Center provides training in career preparation programs for our Waynesville High School students as well as 200 students from eight area school districts.
More than 60% of our students are military impacted and our students speak more than 30 different languages. Because of our academic reputation, the national Lexington Institute selected Waynesville R- VI as one of five districts in the nation to study because of our success in educating military impacted students.
Preparing students for college, career and life readiness begins with our youngest learners. Students in grades K-8 learn to lead and collaborate through the Leader in Me program. At all of our buildings, robotics and coding are offered after school for certain grade levels. At the high school level, students have a wide range of core and elective classes available to them: fine and practical arts, JROTC, STEM, Advanced Placement and dual credit classes, career embedded and internship opportunities as well as the opportunity to attend our local community college as part of the school day.
Each of our K-12 students are assigned a technology device. Students in grades 6-12 take home their Chromebooks nightly, while they remain at school for the younger grades.
From rigorous and innovative programming to our updated facilities, we provide students with the experiences and resources they need to be college, career and life ready. At the center of our work is our mission: to prepare and empower individual lifelong learners for opportunities as citizens and leaders.
