The Miller County R-III School District has been working to resolve issues with the current well system at the school. In doing so, we continue to monitor the safety of the school’s drinking water. Water samples taken by our staff and the Department of Natural Resources have continued to be safe and free of any contaminants. However, in light of this ongoing situation and after careful consideration of the health and well being of our students, the school district has decided to issue a voluntary boil water advisory until we can find a more permanent solution to the drinking water system.

On behalf of the  230 students and 50 staff members, welcome to Tuscumbia Schools where providing a quality education is our primary goal. Tuscumbia is proud of our supportive community, excellent resources and facilities, a dedicated Board and leadership team, with outstanding teachers and support staff. Combined, these qualities promote a nurturing, caring climate that maximizes student achievement, and has resulted in the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education designating the Miller County R-III School District as being "Accredited with Distinction."

The Miller County R-III School District is a rural district of approximately 72 square miles lying entirely in Miller County. The school is located in the town of Tuscumbia, which is the county seat of Miller County.

Farming is the main industry of the area. Cattle, turkey and hog farms are predominate with some row crop farming done along the Osage River. Many of the district's residents supplement the farm income with jobs in neighboring communities of Jefferson City, Eldon and Lake of the Ozarks.
