Graphic announcing Pattonville's new website launch on June 14

The Pattonville School District is excited to announce the upcoming launch of its new website on Friday, June 14. Last fall, we surveyed users and learned our community wanted a site that is accessible, searchable and easy to navigate to find essential resources. We focused on that and much more on the new website and wanted to share some of the exciting changes you will see.

Our district and school celebrates and embraces diversity in all its forms. We believe that every student brings a unique perspective and set of experiences to the table, which enriches the learning environment for everyone. By valuing and respecting different cultures, backgrounds, and abilities, our district and school creates an inclusive atmosphere where all students feel valued and supported.

My husband and I chose to live in the Pattonville district for the educational opportunities and diverse culture to which our children would be exposed, and we haven't been disappointed! The diversity of cultures amongst the students is not only prevalent - it's celebrated. The teachers and staff care deeply about the students, challenging our children when they are ahead of the curve while supporting them when they are struggling and working to bring them up to speed while keeping us well-informed. Prior to having kids attend Pattonville, I was unaware of the focus they have on mental health and well-being. I have been pleasantly surprised by the emphasis on building students' confidence and character, ensuring they feel safe and cared for by their school family. I would recommend the Pattonville District to all of my friends and family.

Parkwood is a wonderful example of a close-knit family and community. As a first-year teacher, I have never felt alone or unsupported. Whether I need advice or guidance, there is always someone available to help, from my colleagues to the administration. I feel privileged to work with such compassionate and caring individuals, both adults and students. One of my personal goals is to be the kind of person I needed when I was younger, and I am grateful to be in a place like Parkwood where I can fulfill that mission.

What I love about Parkwood is the inclusiveness. Bridging cultures together is amazing. My daughter loves coming home to tell me about her friends who speak different languages and teach her how to say words. Pattonville has provided both of my children with the best educators dedicated to helping them reach their full potential. I chose Pattonville for my family because the accreditation the district holds and the schools are diverse. I would recommend the district to anyone trying to decide where to send their kids because Pattonville has a great academic reputation.
