I am a student teacher at Conn-West Elementary. I love my cooperative teacher, the school, and the community. It's a great atmosphere! Keep up the great work!

Personally I have always been very careful about the decisions I make when it comes to my children. My son has been in Con-West for 3 years now and I can really say that the progress I have seen on my son's reading skills is amzing...I love the school and the staff. Con-West Family really care about the kids and their families.....Con-West keep the good work.... Mrs Moore you and your staff are a blessing to our children!

I love the librarian, principle,music instructor, third grade teacher mrs. Walton, and the whole frist grade staff. The rest need to do a better job. Especially by learning spanish, and teaching as a part of regular school curriculum.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
