North is an amazing school. The administration and teaching staff have high expectations of the students and the students do a great job at hitting or exceeding those expectations. North has a great atmosphere for all students and is very welcoming.

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.
