While this isn't a bad school, there are things that could be improved upon. Trying to get the principal to return any form of communication is difficult, although she seems involved with what is going on in the school and has a good relationship with the staff. The materials that get handed out for activities, etc. often get sent home late. There is lack of communication with parents and the PTO is really a joke. Very unorganized school.

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.
