I was a guest teacher at Randall Elementary. I've worked in just under fifty schools and this was one of the worst experiences. Not a single staff member smiled during the day nor greeted me passing the hallways even when I smiled and greeted them. I could not believe how poorly they treated the students. They wouldn't allow the kindergarten kids to use the restroom during lunch! There was an older para in the building during a duty assigned to me for the day that was particularly awful. She barked orders at me to clean up after the students without even a "please" or "thank you" while she and two other teachers just stood there watching instead of helping. I was only halfway through with the chores she asked and she up and left early from her duty. The really sad part is that this negative attitude was contagious to the students as well. The students were , disrespectful, and these behaviors really cut their ability to engage in authentic learning.

my child has ADHD and 2 IEP's on file. The teachers have gone out of their way to help and we appreciate it so much! We have seen such improvement in my child's grades and self worth! We even decided not to move this year to keep the same school. We are very pleased with Randall!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
