Thanks for checking out our Dora R-III School District website and welcome to our 2017-2018 school year. We've had a busy summer sprucing up our elementary playground equipment and purchasing more equipment that should be in place this fall. Our Art and Ag departments have new computers and monitors in place. We have equipped another classroom with a 65-inch television and Ipad for more interactive learning. The district/community FEMA building is under construction and "should" be ready for use during the spring semester. 

A special "THANK YOU" to the Back to Basics group for providing school supplies for our students. We are anticipating a great school in every area! Thank you for all your support! Please stop by or call if you have any questions or concerns.



We Got Game

Our students have won some of the most coveted state awards in track and field competition. One of our students in 2016 took first place in state competition in both the 200 and 400 meter races and finished 3rd in the 100 meter dash. Another student took eighth place in the state high jump competition. It is only fitting that our students excel in cross country when we live in one of the most beautiful areas surrounded by the Mark Twain National Forest. Last year we had seven to qualify for state competition. One of our students was all-state during all four years of high school here at Dora. Two of our golfers competed in sectional meets and one of those went on to compete on the state level. Our baseball team was the District Champ in 2015-16 and were ranked in the top 10 eight of the last nine years. We were the Class 1A State Champs in 2009. Our fast-pitch softball team won the district championship in four of the last five years and finished second in the 2014 State Championship. An elementary student placed fourth in the State Hoop Shot! We have a high school pep squad and dance team to cheer on our athletes. Opportunities are offered for both female and male athletes to excel in basketball beginning with our 4th-6th grade students, continuing on with our Junior High teams, and finishing with our junior and senior varsity teams. Our boys’ basketball team have been conference champions in eight of the past nine years. Our girls’ basketball team were district champs in 2010 and runners-up in both 2013 and 2014.
