Message from the Superintendent

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Pleasant Hill R-III website. We will be beginning the process to establish our School Improvement Plan over the next two months and will be establishing a school and community stakeholders group to lead this process. This process will allow us to establish goals for the district to accomplish over the coming three to five years and will be the guiding resource for establishing our priorities for the future. 

The Pleasant Hill R-III School District will be breaking ground at the high school during the month of November for our classroom expansion and auxiliary gym with anticipation of completion for classrooms by August of 2019 and gymnasium by October of 2019. The process with our construction manager (McGowanGordon) and architect (Hollis and Miller) has been going great with feedback from staff and administration along the way. We look forward to breaking ground in November and starting the construction phase of our 2018 Bond Campaign. Thank you for your support of our students and community.

Our Fall activity season is well underway with some exciting things occurring with our extra-curricular programs. Please get out and support all our students in the coming months as we wind down the fall season and get ready for the winter activities.

Go Roosters! Go Chicks! Go Pleasant Hill!


Steven Meyers, Ed.D.
