My son attended CMS 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 school years and we had a great experience. The format and staff combine the familiarity of an elementary school with the student responsibility of a junior high school. As a parent, I was involved with PTO and, as a result, worked with several staff members as well as administration. The faculty and staff at CMS are knowledgeable and caring people. I feel fortunate that my son attended CMS.

I am a veteran teacher who has also worked in various capacities in research and development. Carthage Middle School leadership and staff represent what education should be doing. While the school has only been in operation for two years, it continues to grow into a nurturing environment that focuses on student achievement coupled with meeting the needs of the individual.

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.
