It is the long-standing belief of the Newburg community that Knowledge is Power. Therefore, it is the mission of the Newburg R-II Schools to educate young people in grades K-12 so that they are prepared either to enter the work force after high school or to continue their education in college, technical school, or trade school.

It is the mission of this school to provide an orderly, safe, clean environment which facilitates the teaching-learning process.

In addition, it is our mission to provide a curriculum which allows our students the opportunity to acquire the academic skills and the traits of character that will allow them to enter society upon graduation with a legitimate hope of success in the pursuit of their career goals and their own personal happiness.
