We were excited to move here from a state where my children had 44 kids in their classroom. To come to a school where they aren't always 44 kids in a grade we were hopeful for more one on one interaction with the teachers. Overall, the teachers are good teachers. I'm not confident in stating that I believe many are there for any reason other than to collect a paycheck, but there are those handful that you know truly care. My biggest complaints would be with the lack of a gifted/accelerated learning environment and with bullying issues. Being an "outsider" in most everyone's eyes has not always made it easy for my jr high aged child. Unfortunately have a staff and administration that have not been educated on what to look for, or how to handle issues with bullying has my child no where to turn (other than us of course). I would like to see the school take a more pro active approach at knowing their students and being more engaged with them. This is our second school year here and they didn't know we were a military family until recently.

Compared to many other schools in Pulaski County and living distance to Ft. Leonard Wood, Crocker Elementary and High schools are leaps and bounds above the rest!

Struggling High school! Very few motivated teachers. Struggling community with very little involvment. Students are not prepared for college at all. New Principal might be able to rescue us. Board needs to open their eyes so the can also help. Pray for the new Princpal!

Crocker R-II School has made many great strides in the past few years... increasing salaries in an effort to keep staff and although they can not compete with Waynesville, they are one of the highest paid in comparison to other surrounding schools of the same size. We have received Destinction in Performance from the state 5 out of the last 6 years and have produced competitive academic teams and several state ranked athletic teams in soccer, basketball, track, golf and Softball. I don't beleive that the school has more problems with drugs and alcohol than any other school district. The administration, faculty, staff and Board of Eduction is currently looking at ways to help detour the use of drugs by our kids. I have sent 4 kids through this school and would recommend it for yours.

Small community and school, but with that you get the individual attention that most bigger schools can't give. There are some very motivated students and teachers in both the high school and elementary. I believe all schools and communities have issues with alcohol and drugs. If you don't think your school has these problems, you might want to pull your head out of the sand. Crocker has received Distinction in Performance for at least five years. I have had one student graduate from here and one still in school. I would recomend this school to anyone.

I am a former student from Crocker High School and now pursuing higher education. Throughout my college life, I have come across many students who were not fortunate enough to have the individual attention and preparation I received. While my future aspirations may lead me from the area, I will make it a point to come back to the Crocker school district so my children can obtain a first-class education and the opportunity to excell. I recommend this school district to all who are considering moving to the central Missouri region.

This school is a very small school, however, the students, teachers, faculty and administrators all seem to work well together to create o positive learning enviroment. This school seems to be the one where 'everyone knows your name'. I would rather have this type of enviroment rather than my child being just a number. This school is small town at its best!! I would highly recommend this school to other parents.

very small community and school, can't keep a staff of motivated teachers, not the teachers fault, lots of alcohol, drugs and click parties. preference for the few financially well to do families. Many parents don't care enough to become involved with the education and welfare of children. Would not recommend this school to a friend.
