—Submitted by a student


Posted June 26, 2007

The teachers at this school are excellent but unfortunately the leadership lacks considerably. Safety is at an all time low with very little regard for the concerns of parents. Sports is the underlying motivator here with little regard for academics. There is no relief in site with the present administration and I am sure the testing that goes on reflects students with higher potential that are not recognized for what they actually do.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
