Welcome to Neosho Junior High School: A Journey Through Our History

At Neosho Junior High School, our commitment to education is deeply rooted in our history. This page serves as a portal to explore the remarkable journey that led to the creation of our school, the transformative impact it has had on our community, and the unique concept of "neighborhoods" that sets us apart.


The Bond Issue of 2015

Our story begins in 2015 when the Neosho community overwhelmingly voted in favor of a pivotal $24 million bond issue. The primary goal was to address the pressing issue of overcrowding and to pave the way for a state-of-the-art junior high school.


The Groundbreaking - February 2016

In February 2016, our dreams took form as we witnessed the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Neosho Junior High School. The sight of golden shovels and the enthusiasm of the community marked the start of our journey towards a modern educational facility.


August 2017 - A Milestone Achievement

Fast forward to August 2017, and we celebrated a milestone achievement. With a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony, we proudly dedicated the new junior high school, ready to welcome its first batch of students. This state-of-the-art facility was made possible through the unwavering support of our community.


Unveiling a New Era and Neighborhoods

The opening of Neosho Junior High School marked the beginning of a new era in education. By centralizing seventh- and eighth-graders in the new junior high school, the district aimed to enhance the overall educational experience. One unique feature that distinguishes us from other schools is our concept of "neighborhoods." These neighborhoods within our school provide students with a sense of community and belonging, fostering a supportive and engaging environment.


Community Commitment to Education

Our journey is not just about bricks and mortar; it's about the dedication of our entire community to the education of its youth. The facility stands as a testament to the belief that providing the best possible learning environment, coupled with the concept of neighborhoods, is crucial for future generations.
