This is an excellent school, especially considering the lackluster educational system of the United States in general. The teachers are well above the national standard, as is the material in the curriculum. I would not go anywhere else. Seriously. If my parents tried to move to a different town/city/etc., I would move in with my cousin, just so I do not have to change schools.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
