The Lesterville R-IV School District, located on State Highway 21, is located in the area. With an average yearly enrollment of 260 students in grades K-12, it is one of the smallest public school districts in the state. Its school colors are red and black and its mascot is the bearcat.

During pool play, Lesterville split sets with Winona and defeated Osceola and Lutheran-Kansas City.
