Posted April 22, 2014

Really personalized instruction to meet the needs of all the students. Staff and student relationships are key to student learning. All students make connections that improve their motivations to learn.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 21, 2014

The Center for Alternative Instructional Resources (CAIR) is the campus and administrative center for the following alternative programs: Transitions (6th 12th grade), Crossroads Suspension Program (4th-12th grade) and Missouri Options GED Program. The District Focus program is also located at CAIR. Our instructional delivery system is focused on real-life project-based learning and we hope to expand partnerships with community businesses and agencies for internship experiences. We are also continuing our advisory program Transitions, in which each student and staff member will belong to a Family that will meet weekly to monitor student academic and behavior progress, communicate with families, and monitor progress toward graduation. CAIR Families participate in Community Service Projects and activities together. Advisers focus their efforts with parent communication and partnerships.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
