This shcool environment learning and socially is not good. Teachers show no compassion for students, lots of yelling and talking down to students, tearing down self-esteem. Principal/school Leadership is poorly managed, unprofessional and need better people skills, especially when it relates to parents. Rewards of good behavior is lacking, but rewards of poor behavior is tops. I think school structure need to be revisited and modified for the students best interest.

The Hazelwood district really needs a foreign language program and at the end of the year, my children hardly brought anything home. I have never even seen any art work at all!

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.
