Schools play a huge role in enticing people to communities. The Mt. Vernon R-V School System sets itself apart by providing quality education for its 1,563-plus students and empowering each to be outstanding citizens upon graduation.

Our Mt. Vernon fully accredited school system was presented in 2005 with its fifth-straight coveted "Distinction and Performance" award, only one of 34-plus schools in the state of Missouri region to receive such a distinction for five straight years.

The Mt. Vernon High School was constructed in 1997 and recent classroom additions were made to the elementary school; plans are presently being made for additional classrooms.

The school system has made a strong commitment with its support of the popular A-plus Program, where students who qualify and meet specific requirements receive college tuition for several Missouri-based institutions of higher education.

The school also has strong extra-curricular activities, including a state-champion women's golf program, playoff contending football, basketball, tennis and volleyball teams, as well as award-winning bands, vocal music, FFA and speech and debate teams.

The district also provides vocational training through the Southwest Area Career Center. The 898-acre University of Missouri Southwest Research Center is devoted to helping the area's agricultural economy. Mt. Vernon also offers two skydiving schools. The school district is also sandwiched between Southwest Missouri State University to the east in Springfield and Missouri Southern State University to the west in Joplin.

The first school in the area was actually built before the town was established, and was said to be in a log cabin on Williams Creek, north of town.

This growing and much-respected school district serves as a bright beacon to the continued growth of the entire Mt. Vernon community.
