  • Mission:
  • Selvidge Middle School is committed to the goal of becoming an exemplary middle school in all areas. The staff is devoted to addressing all student needs, thus enabling the highest level of each student's academic potential. We are dedicated to the principle that each child has ability, dignity, and worth. The Selvidge community is resolved to educate the whole student: to stimulate the mental, emotional, physical and psychological components of each individual toward growth and maturity. We recognize, accept, and respect individual differences, and we pledge our professional skills to educating all our children so that they might excel in their life endeavors.

  • History:
  • Selvidge Middle School is part of the larger Rockwood School District located in a suburban area in Ballwin, Missouri. The school is 30 miles from St. Louis, Missouri. Selvidge has 740 students in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Almost 17% of the students receive special education services, 30% are enrolled in challenge level classes, 16% receive free or reduced lunches, and 13% of the population is African-American students, many of which live in the metropolitan city and participate in a voluntary desegregation program. Selvidge Middle School has demonstrated major improvements in test scores over the past few years, being named a Missouri top ten most improved school in the areas of math and reading. Selvidge has worked hard to eliminate achievement gaps that have existed with students of minority, low-socioeconomic, and disability status. The Selvidge Guidance Department received a national award in 2008 for their efforts in assisting underachieving students and providing a comprehensive program, the only school in Missouri to receive this honor.
