Scott City Schools is a proud district, which has seen many successes over recent years. Scott City has earned the Distinction in Performance for meeting in all 14 standards of accreditation. In 2009, Scott City was recognized as having students most prepared for college. The high school baseball and volleyball teams have each won a state championship in the last 5 years, and the band has earned a state "I", the highest achievement possible, in 6 of the last 12 years. Scott City has seen other success with state track and cross country appearances and victories, the implementation of the A+ Program, the robotics team qualifying for state competitions, and the establishment of The Leader in Me program.

Scott City Schools is committed to "Growing, Developing, and Graduating Leaders by Inspiring One Student at a Time", but it could not be done without all the hard working students, staff and parents which make up this great school system.

With our current economic situation it is important for students and parents to be familiar with scholarship opportunities that will assist in tuition compensation. That is why Scott City R-I is working diligently to obtain A+ designation which will enable us to offer state-paid financial incentive to qualifying students. The A+ award allows qualifying students the opportunity to attend any public community college or technical school in Missouri with little or no cost. To be eligible the student must maintain and meet the following requirements:

I. Enter a written agreement with the high school prior to graduation.

II. Have attended a designated A+ School for three (3) consecutive years prior to graduation.

III. Graduated with a 2.5 grade point average or higher on a four (4) point scale (non-weighted) or a 6.875 GPA on an 11 point scale (non-weighted).

IV. Have at least a ninety-five percent (95%) attendance record for the four (4) year period. (An average of 8 & ¾ days a year of missed school attendance.)

V. Perform fifty (50) hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring for other students. This may include in-school tutoring and summer school. Tutoring must be school sponsored.

VI. Maintain a record of good citizenship and avoidance of unlawful use of alcohol/drugs.

VII. Make a good faith effort to first secure all available post-secondary financial assistance funds that do not require repayment.

VIII. Register for Selective Service if applicable.

The A+ Schools Program was created in 1993 as an incentive for improving high schools in Missouri. The primary goal of the A+ Program is to ensure all students who graduate from Missouri High Schools are well prepared to pursue education and employment. As a school seeking A+ designation, Scott City R-I aims to do the following: reduce the dropout rate; raise academic expectations; provide career pathways for all students; and work closely with business and higher-education leaders to better prepare students for their lives after graduation.

If you are interested in obtaining more information on A+ Schools, please call Keisha Panagos, A+ Coordinator or visit the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s website at http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/aplus/.
