I wanted to send my own kids to Dexter Schools because I graduated from there myself in 1988 and I thought it was a great school. Unfortunately, things have changed. Elementary teachers and principals are far less tolerant of the kindergarten thru 2nd grad aged children and my husband and I have had many problems with our son's teacher this year. I wish we had never moved here and we will be relocating as soon as we can sell our home.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
