Grandview Middle School has high-quality teachers. Unfortunately the administration leave much to be desired. The principal is much more about what makes her look good than what is in the best interest of the children. She gets ideas and tries to turn them into actions rather than setting plans to make sure there are some deliberate results positively affecting students. She is seldom seen at extra-curricular events unless it is to promote something else she is doing. She is unresponsive to parents.

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.
