Cassville schools were recognized recently by US News and World Reports as a top school in America. The administration delivers admirable professional guidance to the students as the teaching staff routinely achieves state and national attention for success through their students. As a former student of Cassville (K-12), and also as a parent of two Cassville students (1 graduate and 1 current student), I can easily attest that Cassville schools remain highly appreciated among those parents who truly care about their children's future. However, if you are looking for a babysitter or have a troubled child who engages in disruption, then Cassville schools are not your best option. ~Steve

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
