I attended this school for high school, as well as all of my family members and I don't think you could find a better place. The principal and staff are some of the very best and with such small class sizes there is always plenty of time for one on one help. The staff and other students are like family and while being here you know you never have to face anything alone. They put your education above all, even if it means staying after school for tutoring to help you pass your classes. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
