My son just spent his first year as a 3rd grade student at Blair Oaks. We moved from Webb City, Mo where he attended ' Webster', also a very sought after school to send your children. Blair Oaks is everything we were hoping for and more. They truely care for each of the children and their education as top priority. A very good choice for any parent wanting the best public education in this area. Elizabeth Wolfe, a parent

This is our first year at Blair Oaks and we are so happy here! Our children have been at another public school in the area and the most striking point here is that there is so much enthusiasm for learning and dealing with the children here. All adults in the school seem to be excited to be at Blair Oaks. And all programs and decisions made are made in the best interest of the student. It is all about the students at Blair Oaks.

For those thinking about attending or possibly still researching locations in which to send your child(ren), I would just like to say that although we have not yet sent any children to Blair Oaks school , my husband and I have made the decision to move to the area as a direct result of this school. So far any time we have had any dealings and / or conversations with anyone from Blair Oaks, the staff has been so enthusiastic and above and beyond helpful with our questions that it just makes you want to come and be a part of what is happening at this school. We are excited to have our daughter begin her educational experience with the teachers at this institution. Thanks so far, for the energy level and genuine assistance and knowledge of your staff at Blair Oaks. It definately speaks highly of the chief educator in charge.

Blair Oaks is a small school attended by students from five small towns surrounding it. I like Blair Oaks because it is small. Blair has wonderful teachers and an excellent counselor. If It wasn't for Mrs. Arnold, school counselor, my daughter would not have know how to apply for scholarships for college. I also went to Blair Oaks and loved it.

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.
