Our Mission:
Students will focus on their positive attributes and recognize their individual strengths and achievement to promote their future success.  The school will create a safe structured environment where students and staff, along with parents and guardians, come together as a community of lifelong learners.  The school will foster individual differences, encourage each other and set challenging goals.  We will strive to think critically and creatively to encourage good decision making strategies to promote a sense of teamwork and cooperation.  Mississippi Valley will be empowered to reach their potential, as well as become respectful and responsible citizens for the future.

Our Vision:
Missouri Schools for the Severely Disabled will ensure students learn authentic skills in a safe environment to be productive and integrated into their home, community, leisure and work.
