Ballwin Elementary is a great school for children to grow and learn in! I have been pleased with the organization of this building! My children have had wonderful, knowledgeable teachers every year from Kindergarten to Grade 5! They do an awesome job managing classroom lessons and they use new ideas that really help children learn. I also love the technology that is in the classrooms. I have always had a positive experience with the teachers, classroom assistants, and the principals. I know my children are getting an excellent education at Ballwin!

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.
