I love working/teaching at Fairmount! The principal provides wonderful leadership and genuinely cares for the teachers, staff, and students. Our teachers put a lot of time & effort into the students and extra activities with & for them. Parent involvement is picking up and will only improve the positive impact this school can make!

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.
