OUR NEW SCHOOL
Thank you Shidler School District Patrons for supporting the bond to build a new junior high and high school. The project is progressing nicely with the footprint of the building now entirely visible and steel being erected. We want to thank our amazing architectural team at Boynton Williams and Associates, our General Contractor, Rick Scott Construction Company and all the quality subcontractors who will bring us a great new school. Improvements to our district are only possible with the public’s support. THANK YOU!!!

This aerial photo of the Shidler school buildings looks to the northwest towards Webb City. It appears that the photo may have been taken from the water tower. This was before the new roof was installed. You can discern where the old, old gym was located in the main building by observing where the set of skylights were located. This allowed the gym to be used during daylight hours without having to turn on any lights.
