Let me first just say that Central Elementary does have a good school policy.They have very well behaved students.Some do have there moments but not a lot.Central also has a special thing another school doesn't; it's a land mark!Been there for at least more than 100 years!Many of people you'll learn about today in the 1800's.Teachers are very giving about they're students and do love to help they're students.Very trusting and has home skills.I highly recommend that school if your in the Ferguson-Florissant School District.And a lot of parents have different opinions about a school before they even try it first.

Unfortunetly this school is not the school to send your child to to maximize the potential. School focuses on writing dicipline reports and keeping kids from communicating and going on field trips. Lunch system is very poor kids cant talk to each other during lunch and sit far apart. This school does not assist children in how to communicate with each other nor let children express themselves to maximize potential. Teachers do not communicate with parents and kids properly. Children at this school become very angry when they enter the campus because of the atmosphere. The principal is not a principal focused and children learning just monoitoring discipline reports!

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.
