Success in life also comes from having a strong foundation of principle on which to base learning. In addition to the educational development of our students, we also concern ourselves with their character development as well. Each month the district highlights a special quality or trait as part of our Character Education Trait of the Month, a program designed to establish wholesome values in every child alongside their studies.
Our greatest resource is the people in the communities that Fox C-6 School District serves. Residents continue to support the district in many different ways, from serving as volunteers at various schools to attending school concerts, activities, and athletic events. Many Fox C-6 School District graduates remain here in local neighborhoods to give something back to the community that supported their education.
Local businesses and service organizations also support the district as a part of the community. As the district is located just south of the St. Louis metropolitan area down Interstate 55, the community has access to all the cultural resources from the city, such as the St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Science Center, and institutions of higher learning like Washington University and the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
