A diamond in the rough! Tucked away in the subdivision, it's a place where "everybody knows your name!" I've never been in such a warm, caring school community!

We love this school. The teachers and administrators are extremely caring and sincere. I currently have just one child attending, but look forward to have both of my children there next year. I cannot say enough about how much the entire staff, and very supportive parent community do to make this a great school.

Student to teacher ratios are very good. Everybody in the staff is helpful. This schhol is even better than the one my daughter went before.

Sorrento Springs is a well-kept secret. The class sizes are small (there are no trailers!)so the staff know the children and parents sooner and better. Our daughter looped 1st and 2nd grade with a teacher she dearly loved and who obviously cared for the children. We think our daughter learns more simply because she knows how much the teachers care. Suzuki violin is a great program and the music teacher is very creative with the musical programs. Our daughter loves art and P.E. and is challenged in the gifted program. Thanks Sorrento... keep up the great work!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
