Our district prides itself on being on the cutting edge of educational technology.  We offer a holistic education that is anchored in a one-to-one laptop program.  Knob Noster was the first public school in Missouri to offer this wonderful resource.  Additionally, our students regularly utilize various handhelds, smart boards, and a wireless network throughout the district. Preparing our students for the ever changing world is our top priority.  The faculty believes in differentiated learning and 21st century learning skills as a focus of their instruction.

The facilities at the high school are second to none with a beautiful all-weather track and turf football field. A softball/baseball complex north of town, reconditioned gym floor, solar lighting and energy-efficient heating and cooling have been part of recent up-grades. The custodial staff does a wonderful job maintaining a clean and orderly campus. The pride that stems from our building is an extension of our students, staff, and community.

Knob Noster Senior High School has a very diverse population due to the influence of our Air Force student roots that Whiteman Air Force Base brings to our climate. The partnership with the Military Child Coalition and the Student-to-Student program provides a user friendly environment for all students in our school system. We are a staff that truly cares for each of our students as an individual and as a 21st century learner. Our staff provides a curriculum that is challenging and rewarding to those who are looking for a quality education.
