My third child is now going through Blevins Elementary. I could not be more pleased with the level of professionalism I have encountered at this school. Dr. Jackson, the principal, has fostered a community atmosphere where all the children feel welcome and the parents are encouraged to participate fully in all activities. Last year the school earned the Missouri School of Character distinction. Many of the teachers have Master's degrees and Bonus: appear to actually care about the children! Sometimes you can get a good educator, but a cool demeanor. Blevins teachers are truly warm. That has been the best surprise for me. I look for high academics and assume I will be providing the love and encouragement for my children at home, but I was more than pleased to discover the students were being so appreciated at school as well. And, when the arts are being cut everywhere, Blevins provides Art, Music and Strings (orchestra) instruction! Strings begins in 3rd grade. PE class is held 4 times each week. I also believe that SMART boards are in every room as well as computer access for all students.

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.
