Hannibal Public School

District #60

The Hannibal School District #60 is rated "accredited with distinction in performance" by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Additional accreditation comes from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools at the career center.

The district features a grade configuration of pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and grades one through five in its elementary schools, grades six through eight in its middle school, and grades nine through twelve in its high school. The area career and technical center is also located on school district property. The district is comprised of five elementary attendance centers including Eugene Field, Mark Twain, Oakwood, Stowell, and Veterans.  All elementary schools are organized as pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

The Hannibal Public School District #60 staff members consist of 564 members, including 326 certificated and 238 non-certificated members. Of the 326 certificated staff members, 59.4 percent are at or above the master's degree level. The average teaching experience level in the district is 12.7 years.

Special programs in early childhood education and parenting, guidance and counseling services, health programs, and special education programs are a vital part of the total program of the Hannibal School District. Also provided are remedial services, both during the school term and during a summer school program. A summer enrichment program is also offered to all students. In addition to these programs, a strong well-rounded, extracurricular program including athletics, performing and visual arts, and publications is offered by the district.

There is a strong relationship between the school and community as evidenced by strong parental involvement, support, and partnership with community organizations. Each elementary and the middle school have active parent-teacher organizations and strong booster organizations exist for band, chorus, and athletics. Success in the activity programs and competitions is a source of community pride.


The school district enrollment has been remarkably steady the past ten years. Enrollment projects indicate a slight but steady increase for the next ten years. There is a possibility of a greater increase in population of school age children if rapid economic growth in the Hannibal area occurs.
