Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Knob Noster Schools is its close proximity of the Whiteman Air Force Base, home of the B-2 Bomber. Knob Noster Schools contain over 60% of military and military impacted students. In fact, Knob Noster School District is among only 22 other school districts across the nation considered “heavily impacted” by the military. The district prides its relationship with Whiteman Air Force Base, and is honored to serve the military’s families.
