I have four kids and three of them go to jefferson andmy 4th one is now in middle school but she also went to this school. I think the teachers are great they really crack down when it comes to education. I would suggest anyone to enroll their childern here. the teachers know every parent and every child. And i really like that. They really keep the parents involed with their kids schol work.

Our children had swiched school after the first week of school. We was alittle scared but after metting the Princale he helped out so much and made us feel at home. We have really enjoyed the values taught to the kids at this school. The teacher really care from the heart and you can tell tey are really trying to help get the test scores higher. That was one of my main concerns. I do fell that they could still be inforcing more ready. The school we were at really made it a nightly chore. Even though we do it nightly I feel it would help if it was asked by the teacher. We have really enjoyed the school and feel that this school ha many things to offer my kids. I can't help to think what the furture holds for this school. So many good things.

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.
