Gladden is a terrific school! My daughter has attended for 2 years, and both her teachers have been caring, creative and enthusiastic about learning. The principal is very involved and energetic, and he is also a lot of fun, so the kids like him too. The music teacher and the librarian are excellent and do really fun things with the kids. This is a school in an area that doesn't have a lot of "money," but Gladden's principal and his staff are doing an excellent job with the resources that they have. I feel like my daughter is learning everything she needs and more, and she really enjoys going to school. I love Gladden!

T have five children and all of them have an a b average. The teachers push our children to be the best they can, and never let a child get behind. one of my children has adhd and mrs. lewis was a life saver with this, she took extra steps that a teacher does not have to take to ge my son where he is. This year my son is a honer roll student, and I think that is thanks to Mrs lewis,

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.
