Education

We are proud to be the home of Truman Public Schools, an independent school district who offers classes in grades K-12. All students attend classes right here in the community, with the elementary in the east wings and the high school in the west wings. Truman Schools provide a safe, personal, quality education to our children who we believe are an invaluable investment in our future. High school athletic programs are shared with the Madelia High School, with the exception of girls’ volleyball and both boys’ and girls’ basketball which are independent. Through this cooperative venture we are able to provide the best program possible to our student athletes. Take a minute and visit Truman Public Schools website for information or telephone them at 507.776.2775 (Elementary) or 507.776.2111 (High School).

Truman is also the home of St. Paul’s Lutheran parochial school, which serves students in grades K-8. Children who attend St. Paul’s receive a Christian-centered education and are active participants in the community. Reach them by telephone at 507.776.6541.

Education doesn’t stop after high school! We also have an active community education program, which is based out of the high school offices. Community Ed offers programs ranging from bus trips to how-to classes to the 55-Alive driving program. Many programs are offered cooperatively with neighboring communities, which offers a chance to meet some new faces. For more info contact them at 507.776.2134. Truman residents also enjoy the convenience of the local library, which is located in City Hall. The library is connected online.  Call the library for more information on how to connect.  To contact the library, telephone 507.776.2717 or click the government link below and select “city hall” for more information.
