Both of my children attended this school. We have been very pleased with the individual attention they received, the high quality of the teachers and the interest the principal displays in each student. The staff and teachers at the school know all of the students by name.

Northview has helped my 'gifted' child so much. The principal is caring and highly competent, the teachers are well mentored by the administration and top notch. The facilities are top of the line. My son's previous school had a gifted program, but it was not individualized and he felt isolated and 'different'. Northview really treats each student as an individual, and my son has blossomed. There is a good deal of parent involvement which is encouraged by the school. It is a wonderful community. My youngest is excited to start Kindergarten.

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.
