Jason Bahr Named New Meramec Heights Elementary Principal

During last night’s Board of Education meeting, the Fox C-6 Board of Education approved Mr. Jason Bahr as the new Principal for Meramec Heights Elementary, beginning July 1, 2024. Mr. Bahr currently serves as the Assistant Principal at Meramec Heights Elementary, a role that he started at the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year.  Mr. Bahr replaces Dr. Dustin Bain who was recently hired as the district’s next Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education. 

Prior to his time as the assistant principal at Meramec Heights, Mr. Bahr taught fourth grade for 17 years at Meramec and was a summer school administrator for two years. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Missouri Baptist University and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration from Southwest Baptist University. Additionally, Mr. Bahr was the 2020 Fox C-6 District Teacher of the Year.


As is the case with all of our candidates, Mr. Bahr completed a rigorous interview and selection process. He received very positive reviews from the hiring committee, consisting of parents and staff. Mr. Bahr also went through a final round interview process with myself, and Dr. Bain. We are all very proud of Mr. Bahr and are pleased to announce that the Board of Education approved him for this position.

I am certain that we will continue to see Meramec Heights students and staff thrive under his leadership.  Please join us in congratulating Mr. Bahr on his new role at Meramec Heights!
