EARLY EDUCATION IN ST. PETERS
This St. Peters District 31 Public School was built in 1869. About the same time, a new brick building replaced the old log school at All Saints Church on the hill. Public school classes continued here until 1951 when Dist. 31 became part of Fort Zumwalt consolidation.

Log constructed city jail located on S. E. corner of lot in early years.


School Districts in Missouri do not belong to the city (any city except St. Louis) but are areas within a county. (i.e. in St. Charles County we have Fort Zumwalt School District, Francis Howell School District, St Charles School District, and Wentzville School District) all school districts cross city limits and townships borders without regard to any government controls. They are autonomous.
Example: Wentzville School District educated kids from Wentzville, Lake St. Louis, Hopewell, Flint Hill, Moscow Mills, & Troy ~ where Troy is in Lincoln County and has its own school district, yet some go to Wentzville.
