Our family moved here last year in the middle of the school year. The transition our 2nd grade and 5th grade daughters made to this school couldn't have gone better. Both of their teachers were absolutely fabulous, caring and concerned. My, now 3rd grader, has an outstanding teacher again this year. Great school!!!!

My 3rd child is entering Shenandoah Valley for kindergarten in August 2010, and I've been happy with the school. Most of the teachers are top notch, and a few could be easily replaced with more competent individuals. The district has made some questionable changes to the cirriculum in the past few years which make no sense, and unfortunately, education has suffered because of this. I don't fault the school itself, the administration and teachers must follow the district guidelines. All in all, a very active school. The PTO always has some fun events planned for all the families. The staff is wonderful, administrators are excellent and the school encourages parent volunteers. A very nurturing and safe environment for the children.

Both of our children LOVE Shenandoah Valley! Our daughter adores her teachers and feels very safe. Bruce Hunter & Rodney Lewis are a great team. A very positive, warm, and friendly environment. We feel very fortunate to have our children there.

We have had an excellent experience at Shenandoah Valley elementary School. The principal is very attentive to the students and faculty and seems to have an excellent overall vision for the direction of the school and the needs of the children.

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.
