I have seen really good things come from this school. The teachers really invest their time and talents into the lives of the students and families. They really want to see the students succeed. The teachers are creative and try to derive innovation and creativity out of their students.

This is the worst school I have ever seen. My daughter's teacher plays favoritism and allows other kids to bully certain kids and when confronted about it, she says she doesnt see anything when it happens right next to her next. My child was treated unfairly and I had to go directly to the school board to let them know what was going on. Since I the issues were brought to the board, my daughter has been sent to ISS as retaliation from the teacher. The reception at the front desk is rude at times. This is not a school I would recommend.

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.
