A new elementary school at Dover Hill will combine two aging elementary schools in Joplin and is scheduled for completion in 2022. The new facility will ensure that all Joplin Schools students have access to safe, quality, and equitable learning environments district-wide. Serving grades K-5, the school will provide flexible learning spaces for students of all abilities. The special education suite will also serve as a tornado shelter for the whole school.
The site will include entry locations on Main Street and Murphy Blvd. with parent and bus drop-off areas separated for safety. New sidewalks will connect the school to Murphy Blvd. Park, Landreth Trail, and Main Street sidewalks.
