If you want your children to be teased and tormented and the principal not do anything about it, then send your kids here. The principal is a push over who is afraid to talk to the parents of the aggressors. He often puts all this problems on the Assistant Principal, who actually tries to slove the problem. The majority of the teachers are wonderful. I only go here because I have no other choice.

This is a great school! The teachers and staff really care about the kids and do everything they can to meet their needs.

I'm a grandparent and I have real concerns about Blue Ridge. My granddaughter has become increasingly less interested in learning in her 4 years there, and her language use (poor grammar, spelling) does not seem to be on a par with students in other schools

Love it. The Teachers provide the students with the resources needed to success!!!

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.
