This school is WONDEFUL. The teachers enjoy what they are doing and it really shows. My kids love going and dont fight me in the mornings to go to this school. We moved from out of state and were scared about the adjustment. The teachers were friendly and helped my children fit right in. I would recommend this school :)

The entire staff is devoted to our children. My daughter lvoes to go to school. As parents, we love the quality of education she receives. We are very pleased with the teacher and staff...the principal is by far a leader in his field. The office door is always open to parents and children alike.

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.
