"Quality Learning Today for Tomorrow"
We will commit our financial, educational, and personnel resources to equip all students with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop to their fullest potential as self-motivated, life-long learners.
The Gainesville R-V School District is "fully accredited" and has A+ designation. Our campus is approximately 1.5 miles east of Gainesville in southwest Missouri between highways 160 and 181.
The 61-acre campus includes the high school built in 1962, the junior high wing added in 1971, and the new elementary school completed in 1995. The school district covers 339 square miles and serves several rural communities including Thornfield, Wasola, Tecumseh, and Pontiac.

Gainesville can't be considered for a gold or silver medal because schools were evaluated on the number of seniors who took "Advanced Placement" courses and how they performed on the AP tests. Gainesville currently does not offer AP courses, opting instead to provide several dual enrollment courses so that its juniors and seniors can earn up to 13 college credits while still in high school.
Congratulations Gainesville High School!
