We know of the one-time existence of a high school in Plattville from research conducted by Roberta
Van Briesen. According to the web address of http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ilkendal/Schools/KCSchools.htm the Plattville area began education for the children of the area as early as 1936. The town's founder, Daniel
Platt, hosted the school in his own home. A schoolhouse was constructed in 1849 (a picture will be displayed
soon). In 1928 a new school house, pictured above, was built that housed a grade school and a high school.
It is likely Plattville High School was either a two or three-year high school. It is also likely
the school closed in the 1940s. If you have this information please contact us so we can add it to this page.
The kids of Plattville today attend high school in nearby Yorkville.
