The school takes great lengths to keep you informed on your childrens progress. They are always very interactive, if there's a problem,you will know immediately. My children (despite that fact) LOVE it in this district. It is the best one by far.

This school is awsome. My student comes home every day saying how she love all of her teachers. She has been absent quite a few days and her teachers made sure that she caught up with her work. They also help her know what is missing so she can make it up. Thanks so much.

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.
