Cedar Hill Elementary is an amazing school!! I am now on my second child at Cedar Hill and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff and the other kids AND parents at the school. Anytime you mention in the Jefferson City community that your child attends Cedar Hill you will hear "wow, that is a great school, you are lucky." And it is VERY TRUE!!

My son is a kindergarten this year 06'-07' and is already learning so much I couldn't teach him. Cedar Hill's possitive environment has really helped his self esteem. I wish there was better communication between home and school but I feel encuraged to call and talk to or leave a message for his teacher at any time. She always calls back with in a few hours. I love that! Parents are encouraged to be as involved as possible. They have assemblies each month to give out awards and really encourage the students to do their best. My son loves school and hates to miss even if he is sick. The diversity level is pleasent but not overwhelming like a lot of the surrounding schools. Also the reading program is, in my opinion, one of the best. They are also excellent at properly ande safely transporting students to and from school. ^_^

If you are considering sending your children to cedar hill our family would highly recommend it. We switched schools from a local private school to cedar hill. One of the best choices i have ever made. We were welcomed with open arms by everyone. We have a new principal this year and what a great addition to cedar hill. My son has never been more happy with every homeroom teacher he has had. His grades went up & have been up ever since he started cedar hill. Individual attention is a+. My daughter started kindergarten this year and brings home outstanding work every day. Super parent involvement, caring faculty and principal leadership is what makes a great school! thank you cedar hill! jennifer mckay timbers

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.
