I am a former teacher. This was such a wonderful school to work for. The teachers are very dedicated and work very hard. The administrators are student centered and focused on cutting edge instructional strategies. The involvement of the parents in the school is remarkable. The Watchdog Dads program is especially beneficial in helping students have male role models. Great school, great kids, great community!

Lewis Elementary School is the best school that my son has ever attended. I am very pleased with the Staff and I love the way they involve the parents with their childs education. I myself am a dedicated mom, but I am one of the few these days. When I see a parent get involved, it just touches my heart. I really like the way the teachers include parents in the students homework regiman. They promote reading and ask the child to read with a parent at least for 30 minutes a night. If we think about it parents, we do not have to do much, listen while you fix dinner, or while you do the dishes. I really look forward to this year and hope to meet more parents like myself. Good luck this year and Go Tigers! Marti Lynn

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.
