The Independence School District is dedicated to "Inspiring Greatness" in each and every student.
The district was accredited with "Distinction in Performance" this year for the third year in a row. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education awards that honor to a group of elite schools based on student achievement, graduation rate, attendance rate, and No Child Left Behind's performance measures, among other factors.
Truman High School has been chosen as a Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education, one of only 20 schools in the nation to be chosen for that honor.
Our school district continues to invest in education by investing in teachers, which is why the Independence School District consistently ranks among the highest in the entire metropolitan area for career earnings. Our employees are a great source of pride!
