We are very proud of our outstanding schools. For the seventh straight year, Nixa Public Schools earned a perfect 100% score on the Annual Performance Report (APR), Missouri's method of judging the quality and effectiveness of schools.
With enrollment of over 5500 students in seven elementary schools, the Early Learning Center, a junior high school, high school, and S.C.O.R.E. Learning Center (Second Chances on Receiving an Education), the Nixa Public Schools is strong and growing. The district continues to invest in quality facilities for our students, as seen in the recent construction of a new state-of-the-art K-fourth grade facility, High Pointe elementary, the renovation of Espy Elementary library and stage, the new Career Opportunities Center and plans for further expansion and growth.
Our schools and students are not the only ones receiving awards. The Nixa School Board was selected by the Missouri School Board Association as the Outstanding Board of Education for the years 2000 and 2004.
