I have had two children go thru this school. My daughter has one more year before she moves on. The teachers are fantastic. The leadership is awesome, and the spirit in the school is untoppable.

I went to this school from my 1st- 4th grade years. I am now in 8th grade at Yeokum. Scott was a great experoence and all my teachers were great. I had a little problem with my 1st grade teacher, and i honestly believe she has a mental problem. But other than that, they were amazing! I really looked forward to going to school everyday, because my teachers made it fun. I was really shy as a little kid, and my teachers experience at Scott really helped me come out of my shell. By 3rd grade, i had 2 best friends that i still talk to today (though we are not BEST friends anymore) So yeah, i give scott 5 stars. I really loved my principal as well, and she really cares aboput the students. My sister, now in 5th grade, also went to scott from K-4th and she enjoyed to!

I love the teachers at Scott, but I do not care for how the principal runs the school. I feel that Her personal beliefs affect how she determines what is 'right' and what is 'wrong'. A new principal is needed there!

I love the teachers here, they really seem to care about the students, but I can't stand the principal. She is new and trying to get a name for herself, changing things, sticking completely to the book and ignoring what is right for individual students.

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.
