Lacking active, visible, and dedicated leadership, which negatively effects the school. Wish the school was committed to teaching and challenging all learners. Older building that needs some updating compared to the other district school facilities.

Staff A : dedicated and intuitive Student base A : kindness and compassion are stressed and it is evident Parental support A : Parents are involved in their students' education Facility B : an older building that is well maintained Special highlight : library media staff instills love of reading in all grade levels and all areas. My children and grandchildren have received a superior education and love of learning at Doniphan. They have been well prepared for their upper level education.

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.
