Unfortunately our map scores speak for themself. Camdenton is a great town, but my kids have attended other elementary schools. If we try to move now after having them in this school I know that they will by so far behind. The controversy with the math is definitely worth investigating. The issues with the reading are worse. The propoganda to make it look better than it is should be a warning. The teachers are great, but the administration is poor.

I am continually impressed with the wonderful job Camdenton school district does as a whole. The large amount of students per grade level are handled beautifully. I am so pleased with the break down of the different schools. (pre-k-2, 3 &4, 5&6, 7&8, then High School) It really lets individuals shine.

Such a fantastic school! My child and I love the friendly atmosphere at Hawthorn. Mr. Shockley pushes teachers and students to do their best. I do get a little tired of all the publicity over the math program. My child excels with this type of math, so I hope the district stays with it.

For being such a new school, Hawthorne has really done a great job. Our principal, Mr. Shockley goes above and beyond to make learning fun, help the kids achieve goals and to create a parent friendly school. I feel very welcomed there. Both years my son has had wonderful, involved teachers. My son really likes that he is rewarded for hard work and good behavior. It is a very positive and well disciplined school enviornment. The math program has caused some contraversy, but we have seen nothing but good results from it. The counselors and office personnel know us by name, even though it is a very large school.

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.
