Great school! good teachers, students, and classes! The gym is great quality. Altough streak marks are everywhere


Posted July 12, 2011

I was not impressed with Ray Miller. After less than two years, the poor quality of both teachers and administration caused me to take my children out of the district. With the exception of the Rapid Academic Program leader, the teachers seemed to be judgmental and uninterested in the well being of my students.

This school is ok as long as you are a parent who is involved, and knows what is going on. If you send your child to this school, just keep track of him or her.

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.
