I have had two students go to KNMS and they had a great experience. The administration helped parents with the transition to middle school and the teachers had high expectations while they also really worked to make sure my children were learning. My son really liked the industrial technology classes and my daughter thrived in the band program. The teachers genuinely care about the students and how they are growing - emotionally and academically. I highly recommend this school to anyone. Middle school is a tough age and this school is a great one to help students and parents with the transitions.

I had heard some scary stuff but once my daughter got there I realized that the sixth grade team was composed of some wonderful teachers who truly wanted the best for our daughter.

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.
