On behalf of the Shell Knob School District #78, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our district webpage.

Our outstanding staff of teachers, support personnel, and administrators have the pleasure of serving nearly 160 PK-8 students. Shell Knob #78 is honored to have established partnerships with the supportive Shell Knob community.   The Shell Knob School Board is committed to providing our students with the best possible education and resources available.

Shell Knob School District #78’s mission is to:

  • Prepare

All our students for success in their future endeavors by providing a safe and engaging learning environment.

As your superintendent of schools, my number one goal is to insure our students are provided with a safe and nurturing learning environment.

If I can ever be of assistance or service to you individually, please do not hesitate to email, call or come by my office.
