This is where you want your kids to be. My children have benefitted greatly from gifted teachers, excellent admininistrators, and a supportive community that makes the needed investments to maintain this district's status as a regional leader in public education.

Meramec School the place to be, cause learning is #1. Great teachers that care about their students. I've had some personal experiences with all the staff, It turned out to be quite rewarding for my child. She loves Meramec school. Everyday shes happy to be a part of the school. She looks forward to attending school each and everyday. I would like the school to have a lower level of music instrument classes verses starting at 4th grade,which I had to seek outside of Meramec School. I feel you must start a stable and solid environment for your child to grow and develop. That's what I'm doing so my seed can flourish and bloom like a wild flower. If you're considering a great education from the beginning to end Meramec is 1st. Good luck to you.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
