This school does not have a computer lab and also does not participate in the DARE program.

My kids love going to school here. It has a small town feel to it, a great community, and like someone else said, this is THE school you want your kids going to in the Fox school district. The teachers care, there is a good student/teacher ratio, and they have different programs if your student is having any problems (reading, math, etc). We are thinking of relocating to a different state, and I'm not sure we'll find a better school out there like this one!

I have 2 children attending this school and have done so since the building blocks program (preschool-which they loved!) We've thought about moving several times but are reluctant to do so because we love the school and the area so much. My kids love the school and the staff is wonderful.

We love this school. 2 days of week of P.E. and Music and 1 day of art. There is good communication between parents and teachers. The teachers are great. We are sorry to be moving out of state.

This is a great school system. My problems include the soda machines as mentioned(How much does the soda company pay to have that machine there? Is it worth it? How about a juice machine instead.)as well as the fence around the playground does not completely enclose the play ground. I was at lunch with my kids and this huge dog came into the yard! Luck has it that it was friendly. The staff is great and should keep up the good work! Were looking for a new house and it has to be in the Seckman system!

Vending machines should be in the teacher's lounge and for teachers only! The only food kids should have is a healthy lunch and perhaps a non-candy type snack brought from home if allowed. Biggest shocker: Kids can buy candy and extra lunches in the lunch line on their lunch accounts. Kids are also allowed to pick their lunch each day. The school sends home a nicely printed healthy lunch menu, but they don't bother to mention that your kids can choose from several alternative menus, such as pizza, or PBJ everyday. So unless you talk with your kids, you never know! This school needs to do everyone a big favor and put a complete and well balanced meal on a plate and serve it. Stop forcing kids to choose whether or not they want veggies, fruit, etc. I'm paying for the whole enchilada so please serve it to my kid!

I am dissapointed by the vending machines that continue to remain in the elementary lunchroom, even though there is space availablity to relocate them- it reinforces the 'junk food' choices and temptation for elementary children. Also I am sometimes taken aback by the mannorism displayed by the teachers - such as yelling at the children as if they were at home yelling at their own kids, less then professional looking handouts or information given to kids/ parents - ( remember, these are college graduate ~ teachers - I expect a certain level of professionalism, not old handouts with whiteout or scratched out areas and rewritten information squeezed in ... this is what computers are for)& a few teacher's lack of professional dress & appearance. I moved specifically to the Fox school disrict & I am very disappointed with Seckman elemantary for a number of other reasons...

This school is great! Neither the students or the parents want to leave it to go to other schools in the Fox C-6 District. Also, every teacher I have met wants to work there. Though the class sizes are large, the staff must be doing something right!

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.
