Why Work in MVR-III?

"One of the reasons that I love working for the Meramec Valley School District is it's my home. I feel connected to this community. I feel connected to the students that we have in our community. We as a school district go above and beyond for our students. I feel like everybody is in it collectively."

- Jenny Devine, Art Teacher/Activities Sponsor

"We have some of the most amazing seasoned staff members here at MVR-III, and they do help mentor and develop our new staff members as they join us over the years. And they're knowledgeable, and they share that knowledge with the incoming teachers, the incoming staff, and that is just key to have that consistency for our students as they learn and grow year after year."

- Keith Orris, Building Principal

"I went to Pacific, I was a Pacific High School graduate, I currently live in the community, and my own kids - they attend Zitzman, they attend PI, and they attend the high school. We're just a very close-knit community, and I'm proud to be a Meramec Valley School District teacher."

- Jenna Alt, Middle School Teacher
