I actually know someone who GRADUATED from Moniteau and cannot even read! I'm not kidding. I's true! The school is a full year behind other school districts in the area. My daughter started here in 7th grade, she did the exact same work she did in 6th grade in Butler school district. They even used the same books she did in 6th grade there! There are several teachers who like to bully and intimidate students. The office is no help with this. The vice principal actually likes this quality in teachers. One male teacher will call girls "dogs" and bark at them if he doesn't think they are attractive looking! I talked the vice principal about this too, and she didn't care! The office people are extremely rude and unorganized. I'm surprised they get anything done in there. It's August 18th, right now, and I've never been notified when the first day of school is! I have absolutely nothing good to say about this school. If you're a football player or a cheerleader, you can do anything you want. If you are not , then you are not important to the teachers or staff. It's really a shame.

Moniteau is not the best school. I have been here 3 years and I still don't like it. I was in all honor classes when I transferred here, and now I don't even have a science, math, or a history class because they refused to give them to me. Now instead of having classes I needed, I have Music appreciation, two study halls, and a bogus cu math class(I do not consider this an actual math class). If I would of stayed at my other school I would of graduated a year earlier and now because this school I might not be able to graduate next year. Their 11th grade history class is a 9th grade class I toke at the 1st and 2nd high school I went to. The school cares little about the students education and more about their sports. Do NOT send your children to this school, they will learn nothing here!!

Moniteau is not the best school for students. Bullying is a major problem, many faculty members just don't care about their students.

A step above an inner-city school. I attended Moniteau coming from a wealthier family within the area. THe school's school is meeting standards, not educating and going beyond the scope of precedent. Advising is THE single worst element of the high school. Upon graduation I am attending a nationally top rated university, on my own merit. The advising program gave little inclination to what classes would benefit me, how SATs & ACTs measured activity, how to prepare for AP exams and I was clueless as to what an SAT2 was upon graduation. Teachers came from the area, and taught to the area mostly with the goal of community college or tech school..

Super High school. My daughter, stepdaughter, and stepson, all have graduated from this school.Teachers, administrators and the facility have always strived to be top notch. This area is mainly farm country and can use extra money not generated in an area with more industry.

Moniteau is a small school out in the country that cares very little about the childrens education. They focus more on sports than anything else. I run into an issue where my child was not aloud to participate in the Nationwide Holiday of 'take your child to work day' because she would be punished and not aloud to play her game that night, but, a child can go to school on the day of game day and get in trouble, serve their 'in school detention' and still participate in the game that night. What is that teaching our children? And the peer pressure in this school is horrible. The drugs arent quite as bad as some other schools but they are there. There are some teachers in this school that will tell you that they are there for a paycheck only and they really dont care if the students learn or not.

Moniteau is a non-diverse school that does place to much emphasis on sports and not enough on education. Although, they did have a wonderful agricultural education program until the teacher retired. Moniteau needs to place more emphasise on acedemics and their agriculture program.

Moniteau is a rural school that places too much emphasis on sports. With the introduction of the AP courses, Moniteau is beginning to challenge its students. There is a mix of dedicated teachers and some that ought to have retired long ago. Highlights for this school include the high school Science department, the English department, the music department and the Home Economics department. I was unhappy with the history department which for two years amounted to little more than a handwriting class. My Senior year of History however, was taught by a wonderful teacher Mr. Milo. What this school needs is a refocus on academic and the arts and less focus on sports. As far as small schools go, this was one with little to no peer pressures. I was never scared or worried about peer issues at this school.
