I attended and graduated from this school district. I am pleased with the education I received. I was prepared for college. This districts Special Education Program is good too. My daughter received various services and I was very pleased with the staff.

This school has an excellent teaching staff and administration committed to help students achieve. The students are very welcoming to new kids, and the class sizes are low.

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.
