Would not suggest this school to anyone with a special needs child. My son has Asperger's Syndrome and social skill problems and the school ignores kids bullying him daily and punish my child for annoying the other children instead of teaching him the proper way to act. We are selling our home so our child does not have to go to this school anymore.

This was my son's 1st experience in a large school(coming from Millersville small atmosphere). The adjustment was exceptionally easy with a lot of enthusiasm from his teacher which he adores(Mrs. Baugh). The school is a big school with a small school feeling, yet with all the extras included. We have been so pleased,in fact,that my youngest daughter is thrilled that she too,will also be attending next year! Thank you for such a wonderful year!

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.
