I have had two children attend this school. When my oldest daughter attended 3 yrs ago the school was very affective in all aspects. However, since my youngest has started attending this school I have seen the way things have changed ... it hasn't totally gone down hill but well on it's way. The lack of overall parental support for the school as well as the children is really disappointing.

I have two children in Dobbs right now. I cant wait for them to be done and out of this school. For a school that is so anti bullying, it really doesn't want to do anything about bullying when it happens. If we had the money our kids would be in private school right now and not in a school that seems to not care much about the students well being. My sons teacher is awesome in all aspects. I wish the school was as deserving of her as the children.

My kids attended Dobbs from K-5 grade. This is an excellent school. The teachers care about the quality of education, and the principal is committed to maintaining a safe atmosphere for students. Too bad they only go to 5th grade. I wish my kids could have had a few more yers there.

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.
