Welcome to the Carthage R-9 School District! Carthage R-9 Schools have an outstanding reputation and a long history of excellence. We have been recognized by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with the state’s highest honor, Distinguished Performance for Improved Student Achievement. We are known as a top-notch school district and our programs provide a high-quality learning environment. Students learn through a challenging curriculum taught by highly qualified teachers.
In today's world, parents and guardians have options when it comes to finding the best educational opportunities for their children. I believe this is the reason our district continues to grow as parents discover the myriad of advantages and possibilities for their children to excel that come from residing within our boundaries.We invite your participation in our schools and encourage you to contact us with your ideas and suggestions through our district’s website at www.carthage.k12.mo.us.
