Barretts was an excellent school. My son has Asperger's. The IEP program they set up for him helped him reach the success he needed in his acedemics. I greatly appreciated all the support and help they gave him in the through out the years. Everyone there is amazing and friendly; taking them time to know each student as a person and their family. I do not think you could ask for a friendlier teachers and administration.

When we first moved into our house, our neighbors went on and on about their postive experiences at Barretts. We have been very happy with our daughter's experience there in terms of caring teachers and support staff as well as academic standards. Better yet, the kids in her classes are very nice and the parent involvement is through the roof! The school has a great community atmosphere.

Barretts is a wonderful small school with incredible parent support! The staff knows every child by name and parents are always welcome and present in the building. I have been very pleased with the level of skill the teachers have and their knowledge of my son and his interests.

My son loves Barretts, that is the scale I go by. He is learning, playing, thriving. The staff at Barretts is excellent. With the recent changes, I pray for the teachers and administrative staff to continue to work on building strong, professional relationships.

Barretts has a highly dedicated group of teachers and parents. The extra effort made by the teachers is what sets Barretts apart. Test scores aside, which were awesome, by the way, the energy and environment is incredible. We are so happy with our school. When we moved here, we based our location so that we could be in the Barretts boundary.

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.
