Maryville, MO – Maryville R-II School District proudly welcomes Philip Pohren as the newly appointed Assistant Superintendent, reinforcing the district's commitment to excellence in education. Mr. Pohren, currently the Elementary Principal at our own Eugene Field Elementary, brings a distinguished record of leadership and a passion for student success to his expanded role.  Philip Pohren has been a driving force at Eugene Field Elementary since 2018, overseeing a dedicated team of thirty-five certified and twenty non-certified staff members, and shaping the educational experience for approximately 500 students. Under his guidance, the school has embraced innovative strategies to foster learning, cultivate self-confidence in students, and establish meaningful partnerships with community entities, ensuring access to a high-quality and comprehensive education.  Previously, Mr. Pohren served as the Elementary Principal in Chillicothe R2 Schools from 2008 to 2018, where he built a culture of success and inclusivity.

Mr. Pohren's experience also includes his role as the Elementary Principal at Winston R-VI in Winston, MO, from 2006 to 2008. In this initial administrative position, he focused on building self-confidence as a decision-maker, effectively managing conflict, and identifying and addressing deficiencies within the school.
