Meadowbrook is a horrible school. My children went there until 4th and 3rd grade. Shame on me for not leaving sooner. My oldest daughter's teacher wasn't there 2 days out of the week the entire year and she didn't get to progress like she needed too in Math. Also there was a poor substitute who put children down and nothing was done about it! Now my children in are in a new school and within a day there was a substitute teacher that got in trouble for saying mean things to students and she was out of there. Unfortunately my daughter is still struggling math due to lack of a teacher's presence. Poor school. PTA wastes money.

From day one, the school and staff have done all they can to help my son succeed. His teachers for the past 4 years have been great. One principle transition went smoothly and both principles worked wonderfully with him. Any issues that have arisen due to his needs have been addressed and brought to me. I am very happy that we are in this district.

I have sent two generations through this school. I have found the teachers to be efficient and the staff encouraging and helpful. When there were questions i received prompt and concerned attention.

I love the teachers. They are so involved and really want your children to do well. They allow for parents to also get involved and that is a big plus for me!

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.
