Procter Elementery Imove from Atlanta to Independence .My son love the school and the teacher .I really think the school is amazing .
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 1, 2011

My child attends this school's Early Education program.We both love his teacher!She's wonderfully down to earth yet professional.She makes the extra effort to work on home issues at school and vice versa. I honestly feel that she cares for my child the way she does her own children.The teacher aides are also wonderful.All staff is firm but loving.My son has flourished in his education and loves attending this school. That being said, it's a shame that Procter is a part of the Independence School District.They are so disorganized!Their offices close about an hour before any parent is out of work. I end up playing phone tag to resolve issues.We receive statements for HUNDREDS more than we actually owe due to system delays!There is little to no inter office communications and every employee has a different explanation of everything.We get a termination letter BI WEEKLY because of these delays .The budget cuts have taken the focus off Independence children and have created desk jockeys trying to justify a job by bullying parents in order to look useful. Sadly, the inaccuracy of the district and the subsequent headache from their incompetence has soured our experience with this school.

This school does a great job with the students. The principal knows everyone, the staff is great, and especially the music teacher has inspired my kids to love music. Their classroom teachers really care about them, too. The lunchroom people are so helpful.

Excellent small school with good parent involvement. Has before and after school program, all day kindergarten and updated building. My kids are now in high school and still go back to Procter to volunteer. (It's a neighborhood school and my kids walk there.)

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.
