MORE ABOUT BOARDING SCHOOLS IN MISSOURI
Education is compulsory from ages seven to sixteen in Missouri, commonly but not exclusively divided into primary and secondary education: elementary school, middle school, junior high school, and high school. Most boarding school programs include kindergarten to 12th grade. District territories are often complex in structure. In some cases, elementary, middle, and junior high schools of a single district feed into high schools in another district.
The Missouri Learning Standards define the knowledge and skills boarding school students need in each grade level and course for college success, other post-secondary training, and careers. These expectations are aligned to the Show-Me Standards, which define what all Missouri high school boarding school students should know and be able to do.
The latest expectations aligned with the Show-Me Standards are called the Missouri Learning Standards. The Missouri Learning Standards help ensure boarding school students learn basic and higher-order skills, including problem-solving and critical thinking. The standards are relevant to the real world and reflect students' knowledge and skills to achieve their goals. Learning outcomes improve when students, parents, and teachers work together toward shared goals. The Missouri Learning Standards give school administrators, teachers, parents, and students a road map for learning expectations in each grade and course. The Missouri Learning Standards do not dictate curriculum. Local districts and boarding schools make their own decisions about curriculum, instructional strategies, materials, and textbooks.
Most Missouri boarding schools provide instruction in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies to one or more grade levels that include at least one grade from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The boarding school has a physical location, and students are instructed on site. The school must be a nonprofit but not a school district, a neglected/delinquent institution, or a charter school as defined by Missouri law.
Missouri state minimum high school boarding school graduation requirements comprise 24 credits earned before graduation. The requirements are stated in terms of the number of unit credits earned in each of several subject areas. To earn one unit of credit, a student must meet all the course requirements and earn a passing grade.
