About: The Jessieville School District exists on the foundation that all students are lifelong learners. "We strive to strengthen students' integrity, engagement, and success in a safe and orderly environment. We will produce confident 21st-century global citizens through high-quality instruction and an involved community. Failure is not an option! Jessieville School District has been in existence since 1937. Jessieville School District is nestled in the Ouachita Mountains and serves a 203-square-mile radius. It has played a vital and significant role in the history of the area, and Jessieville pride runs deep in the hearts of the community. Built in 1937, the Rock Building has been updated and remodeled and has played a part in the education of four generations of some local families," according to its website.
