Neosho school system is GREAT! My dad graduated from there in 1961, I graduated from there in 1983, my sister in 1986, my oldest son 2007 who was also Class President, my second son in 2009 & my youngest son will graduated in 2022! I obviously have had several years dealing with Neosho Schools and at least 8 more to go! Speaking from experience I wouldn't want my kids going anywhere else! Neosho is a very supportive community- GREAT PLACE to raise kids!

This school has gone way downhill. It used to be a school full of fun and school spirit. Now there are fights EVERY day. Most students are depressed and wanting to run away. The staff have no concern for the kids. The teachers ,at least most of them, don't care about there job. This school is REALLY sad.

I honestly dont think Neosho is a bad school. Ya the students might have to wear name badges but i think it just adds safety to the school. Maybe its not the newest school in the state but at least its safe and the students are learning. To me Neosho is a wonderful place and i wouldnt choose anywhere else...there are much worse schools that our children could be at. Also to me the classrooms arent that crowded. The only real problem in the school is the students not getting along because of the different social groups.

I honestly think this school is not the best, the children are forced to wear ID tags like dogs. My child is a sophomore and is tired of the huge class sizes and most of the teachers are so out numbered it is hard for them to help all the students understand, my child is having troubles for that reason.

This school is not very good at reaching all of thier students due to the large class sizes. They do however, have a fantastic art and drama class available to many students. I took them both in 2001-2002. The school is not overly crowded any longer, so the students can get to know almost everyone and most of the teachers. I loved going to Neosho High, I almost wish that I would move back from Oklahoma and go to school there again.

About the tests

The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
