The Malden R-1 School District provides a quality education to students in grades K-12. The staff is dedicated to teaching and preparing young minds so students can further their strong foundation of discovery and knowledge as they approach college and successful careers. The administration and Board of Education maintain an "open door" policy and invite your interest in the school. Meet the faculty and view their class agendas, homework assignments and more.
Malden Schools offers its students programs and services to meet a variety of needs. Extracurricular activities include Malden's state championship BETA Club, SADD, Drama Club and many others and active sports programs for boys and girls. Of course, the school system tries to keep the students happy and healthy with a well-rounded breakfast and lunch menu!
The successful approach to educating students can be seen in the state's annual report card of schools where Malden's attendance, testing and graduation numbers are above the state average. Malden R-1 will continue to focus on its students and their success. For more information about the school district, please contact Malden R-1 Schools at 573-276-5794.
