I have three children that attend this school, however our experience, from riding the bus to the principal and to a teacher has not been a good experience this year. The school overall needs to be more aware of the many faces of their children and try a litter harder to connect.

My husband's son attends this school and his grades are great but we have not had a good experience this year. I believe that this is due to his teacher and acknowledge that his previous two years have been great fastastic.

This is a great school! Lots of diversity-with students and the types of teaching. I love the fact my child goes to this school! I don't feel the teachers look tired. My child has always felt welcomed and the teachers really care how he learns.

Some great teachers, majority appear tired and do not appear to enjoy their environment. Lots of special needs at this school as well as lots of transferring.

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.
