It's a great school. It's easy to get help if you need it and they won't go on until you understand the material.

I will be graduating this year at Niangua High. I have been there since kindergarten. The school has had its ups and its downs. But overall its a great school. I love it there. Teachers will work with you even stay after school hours if you have a low grade or need some help on homework. Its a very little school but it gives the students one on one time with the teacher. Most bigger schools doesn't have that. I'm very proud to say that i'm going to be graduating from Niangua.

Niangua is one of the BEST schools and they have the best teachers ever.

Niangua is a great school. We have gotten good map scores. and the teachers are very involved because most come in early just to tutor children and some stay after till 6 to tutor and give advice.

Niangua has a good teacher to student ratio. The new administration is trying to bring the school up to par, but their MAP scores are still really really poor. Teachers are still not very willing to work with parents on student achievement.

I am very pround to be alumni of Niangua School! I have to be frank I went to Marshfield for 2 years (not by choice) and learned little if anything. When I finally got the oppurtunity to go back to Niangua School I jumped on it and was fortunate to finish my junior and senior year at the school. I was heavily involved in the choir and music programs, drama and cadet teachers program and I excelled in my studies, because I had teachers that really cared for me and were concerned that I make it in life! May God Bless Niangua Schools and Staff Always!

I believe Niangua is a great school people just don't give it enough credit. They beat Marshfield on their ACTs so the teachers must be doing something right. i belive kids will learn alot from Niangua.
