Posted October 26, 2004

We recently moved to Marshfield, and our children have attended schools in both Springfield, MO and San Jacinto, CA. Compared to the other districts they've attended, this district has done the most to help both of my children. For my Learning-Disabled son, they have given him more time and one-on-one attention for each area he struggles with than any other school he's attended to date. For my gifted child, they have challenged him and given him opportunities to show what he is truly capable of. Because the school is made up of only 4th and 5th graders, the boys are surrounded by their peers and have had good social development as a result. I am very happy with the way things have gone so far this year, and I wish all school districts could be this attentive.

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.
