Do not enroll your child in this school if they are interested in learning and on grade level. There are so many distractions in the classroom it disrupts the learning process. The environment does not promote academic progress or success.

CMS is a great school. There aren't too many students and the classes are not crowded. If you move to Cape pick CMS.

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.
