Shell Knob School has high educational standards and expectations for each student.  Students have established a tradition of excellent academic success and attendance, which goes hand-in-hand to produce the kind of caring, committed, contributing citizens for which Shell Knob is known.  We believe that hard work, cooperation, and involvement of the staff, students, parents, and the community are the keys to each individual student's success.
