Our son just completed Kindergarten. Overall we LOVED this school. His teacher was amazing, the parent involvement/PTA is awesome and we were very impressed with the principal. Honestly don't love the PE teacher ( not very personable and my son came home saying he watched a movie a little too often) and I also wish they had a foreign language program but, other than that, we are very pleased!

Wow! What a great school. This has been our home since it opened approx 11 years ago. I couldn't think of a better place for my children to attend school. The teachers/staff are simply amazing! We have the best volunteers working hard to support our teachers/staff/and children. Thanks Sunny Pointe family for all your do! Go Pumas!!

Sunny Pointe is an excellent school. Very professional and caring. The Principal goes above and beyond. One of my kid's is in the Autism program, and has improved in every subject in one year. Coming from a small town with little resources, Sunny Pointe and it's staff are a Godsend to our family.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and loves her teacher. I am impressed with how the rest of the staff also knows my daughter too. Everyone from the principal to the nurse and office staff. They knew her pesonally before even a month of school had beed done. She is not a problem child, they just went out of their way to meet every child. There are great teachers and programs. I have to move soon, but hope that we can find a house nearby to keep her in this school because it would be worth it. I also think that there is good parent involvement even for little events during the school day. It is truly a caring environment for any student.

This is the first year at Sunny Pointe for our son and he absolutely loves it. His teacher is great and keeps in contact with me regularly thru e-mail. There are a ton of activities and choices for the children to get involved with. The school is clean,neat and sanitary. The staff is wonderful and easy to talk to. The Prime Time program is also a huge plus. Our son wants to get up early in the mornings so he can get to school first.

This is a new school which needs more time to gain student's schievement in terms of MAP test. Most parents' school-involvements are not learning-oriented. Students are full of potentials and simply need extra test-prep courses. Yes test is test, but we always use test score to 'rate' a school, don't we?

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.
