Fastest Growing School District in Missouri
The WSD continues to be the fastest growing school district in Missouri, adding on average 500-600 new students each year since 2001. During that same time period, the WSD has built 11 new schools and a new Transportation Facility. “We could not build at the rate that we have without the support of our community,” shared Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain. “The voters have supported our levies and bond issues, and in return we are building new schools and delivering a world-class education for our students.”
