The faculty really cares about the kids
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 13, 2010

Some great teachers (but very few). Lack of respect amongst many or the staff. Elemenatary behavior from the adults. Has not passed 'no child left behind' for past 3 years. Once a great school and district. Wish the clock could turn back

Awesome teacher, and staff! I was so impressed with the quietness of all the students and how good they acted with the cafeteria crew. Safe enviroment, and lots of activities for PTA and students

Great staff and reading is one of their most important subjects.

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.
