Steve Richards


We would like to welcome you to our web page. We have a lot of exciting projects going on at Dora R-III schools in the 2016-2017. We continue to update our technology to benefit our students. We have completed improving our softball facilities and our currently building a nice barn for our agriculture classes. A large portion of these projects were funded by donations of money and time. We are extremely proud of our school and this spring we will begin to build a storm shelter/ multi-purpose room which will benefit our students and our community.

Please stop by or call if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Mission Statement

The mission statement of the Dora R-III School District, a caring community, is to prepare each unique student for the world beyond our doors through: communicating a standard of excellence, a dedicated faculty and staff, and a safe and nurturing environment.


We provide a small school atmosphere, low student-to-teacher ratio and personal attention that enhances each student’s educational opportunity. If this is a priority to you, then we may be just the right fit for your family. Based on the new MSIP 5 standards data over the past 5 years shows Dora would be accredited with distinction.
