Great school that is long-established in the Kirkwood Community. The school even has a great wooded area adjacent to the school.

Westchester educators meet the needs of every aspect of my childrens education. They are wonderful in teaching the whole child physically, mentally and socially. The parent involvement is tremendous! What a great school community!

Our school has provided outstanding education for our two sons. The principle is the best judge of new talent I've ever met. Thank you Westchester!

The entire faculty, including the principal and counselor, work hard to meet the individual needs of all students. I am very happy with the quality of education my children receive.

I couldn't ask for a better school for my 4th grader and kindergartner. Great teachers, great facilities, small and compact school district. We are very fortunate to have this school near our home.

This school is a great example of parents and teachers working together to give their children the best. The teachers here are the best listeners I have come across - it is the first time we have our children in the Missouri public school system.

Awesome school. Our first exposure to public school education (previously all parochial schools). We could not be happier with the teachers, education, and the community of this school.

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.
