We have been very pleased at West. This is my oldest child's last year at West. We have had a very positive experience there. There is a low turnover rate among teachers which I think speaks volumes about the school. The leadership from the principal is wonderful. She does a great job running the school in a supportive, professional manner. The PTA is strong and the overall parental involvement is good. I feel that my children have had wonderful academic and cultural opportunities at West. I feel that my children are receiving an excellent education but are also able to enjoy their childhood. They are not pushed so hard to be 'overachievers' that they miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a child. West had figured out an appropriate balance between the two. My thanks go out to the school and its teachers.

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.
