This is a wonderful school! The only reason why my daughter is no longer a student here is becuase we relocated to another state. I honestly didn't know how good we had it until we left. I haven't found a school yet that compares to willow brook. The faculty is great! They are very warm and friendly. Their after school program is great also. They encourage the family to be envolved and offer many family oriented activities. I felt safe with my daughter attending this school and that was second on my list to academics when choosing the best school for her. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who was trying to find the right school for their child.

Willow Brook is one of the very best schools out there. They challenge children to use higher level thinking skills. My child has attended three different schools and this is the very best! Karen Hall is a very compassionate principal. The teachers follow her lead and continue the respect all the way down to the children. My daughter is gifted and they meet her needs in the class room because they teach to all children using multi level lessons.

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.
