The best Joplin has to offer. My little guy just started in the preschool this year, and has grown tremendously along with the other students. Great teachers, loving atmosphere, quality for the money. I highly recommend Martin Luther School in Joplin.
My 9 year old was in this school last year and will be in it this year. It's first rate! I like the traditional curriculum, and small cosy classrooms, and it is nice having under 20 kids in the whole grade. I'm Catholic, and I tithe, so the local Catholic school would be free to my child, but this school is better.
