The special ed in this school is abhorant. Parents and specialists that parents bring are dealt with with distain. They refuse to comply with what is necessary for the sp needs child to be successful. They are hostile, sneaky, and inappropriate. Ex: my child is not to have sweets of any kind. During one of the party times I took her to an appt instead so she wouldn't have to deal with it. The teacher saved a mountain of sweets from the party and gave them to my daughter every day the next week, telling her not to tell me.

My son loves going to school here. He enjoys the learning time as much as the free time. The staff is very friendly which makes it easier to communicate my sons needs.

Cambridge is a very compasionate school deal with alot of one on one with the kids. Safty is great cameras have been put up for security and the parents are carded each time of pick-up. The education is sharp. My 7 year old is a second grader and in the first grade they had her on a 5th grade reading level.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
