Posted January 5, 2012

Garfield is always improving. I appreciate the care and attention to detail that my son's teacher shows every day. My son has learned so much about math and science at Garfield. I am constantly amazed when he does complex math problems quickly in his head: I know he learned all of that in school! I am very satisfied with his enthusiasm and educational progress.

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.
