Lindbergh Schools History

  • Lindbergh Schools formed in 1949 when five elementary school districts were consolidated. The district and community grew rapidly and student enrollment went from 855 in the first year to more than 12,000 in the early 1970s. Like many districts, Lindbergh experienced a decline in enrollment which stabilized at about 5,000 in the late 1980s.

    The district has received Missouri Distinction in Performance every year since the honor was established, and the highest rating given by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education since 1957. In addition, Lindbergh High School is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a member of the College Board Association.

    Strong schools are a product of strong communities, and Lindbergh is no exception. Residents help in our schools in various ways, serving in Parent Teacher Organizations, Booster Clubs, OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring, special needs committees and volunteer programs.

    Successfully providing for the educational needs of Lindbergh’s youth has been the primary objective of the district. This objective will continue to be met through the cooperative efforts of residents and school personnel.
