School Tour at Annual Event: Mehlville School District


Mehlville Portrait

At this year’s Annual Event, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in unique school tours of the Mehlville School District. Located in south St. Louis County, the district serves the educational needs of about 10,000 students in a community of about 96,000 residents within 42 square miles. The district believes that all of their graduates should be creative and critical thinkers, self-aware, persistent, communicators, and ethical and global. This is represented in their Portrait of a Graduate. 

You and your team can sign up for this add-on experience when you register for the Annual Event in St. Louis!


Groups will be visiting two of the following locations:

Elementary Tour

MOSAIC Elementary School focuses on a personalized approach to teaching and learning. Teachers co-teach in “studio” style classrooms, giving them the flexibility to use a variety of instruction styles and adjust in real time. During the visit, attendees will observe co-teaching, project-based learning, collaboration, learning menus, flexible pace and place, learner agency, and learning progressions.




High School Tour

Mehlville High School serves about 1,500 students in the northern side of the district. In 2022, they launched the Flex program, a student-focused, half-day academic program where students drive their own learning through an integrated academic approach. They also offer a variety of choice programming for students, including MyPath, STLCAPS, Geometry in Construction, and more.
