About Pattonville

We Are Villemade

A graduate “made in Pattonville” is ready for success in life, whether the next step in their journey leads to college, career or additional training and apprenticeships. Through a personalized, innovative approach to education, we equip our students with the knowledge, skills and critical thinking abilities that enable them to thrive in a constantly changing world. In Pattonville, children are at the center of everything we do. We care about their hopes and dreams for the future. Because of this, we don’t ask children to adapt to a one-size-fits-all education. We adapt to their learning needs. We get to know our students as individuals to better understand their strengths and challenges, we give students voice and choice to make their learning more meaningful and we use data to help us make smart decisions that will have the greatest impact on their academic growth. What’s more, our students benefit from learning in a high-achieving, diverse school environment that enjoys the support of a connected and caring community. #villemade

A Personalized Approach to Learning

Every child is beautifully unique. They each have their own strengths, their own curious way of exploring the world - and their own way of learning. Not every child learns at the same rate and in the same way. In order to help each child reach their full potential, Pattonville offers a personalized approach to ensure our students achieve at high levels. Personalization refers to instruction paced to the learner’s needs, tailored to learning preferences and adapted to the specific interest of different learners. Our schools also offer a variety of options that support student success:

A Place Where People Care

Parents want what’s best for their children. They want the individuals entrusted with the education of their children to care for them as much as they do. It’s a responsibility we take seriously. At Pattonville, we’re committed to getting to know our students and providing what they need to be successful at each step of their educational journey. Our students excel academically, but they also have a sense of pride in their schools and a heart for helping others. Every day, we strive to make their learning more personalized and relevant. 

We are not alone in our mission. In Pattonville, you’ll find a strong sense of connection. We are part of a community that supports the needs of our students and regards our schools as vital to the community’s success. Pattonville is small enough that you can get to know others, but large enough to provide programs and services that meet our students’ needs and interests and open doors of opportunity. Our alumni frequently return to cheer on their Pirates, make Pattonville their home or even serve in the district as teachers, support staff, board members and administrators. Our success is founded on an open and proactive relationship with our students, families, staff and community.
