I think Zitzman is a great school. My daughter is currently in her last year there and has attended since Kindergarten. Mrs. Pahl is an awesome principal. You can tell she is committed to the school, teachers, and children. So far, I have loved every teacher that my daughter has had at Zitzman. Zitzman has won several awards as a school and some of the teachers have individually as well. The staff really go out of their way to create a family-friendly environment and a place for kids to flourish. If parents are half as committed as the school...their kids should have no problem doing well. Thanks, Kellie

We've attended Zitzman for the past four years and have found the staff and Principal very attentive to each kids needs...They are experienced and are giving good direction to the students..They care about the students progress and I have seen great efforts being made by the staff...Long hours after school...Hours during the summer months...and other times when they are not getting paid to be there....Zitzman has proved to be a great school... and overall... I am pleased with my child's progress and the attentivness given to her by the staff....especially the Principal...

I see a lot of dedication from the staff and especially the Principal towards making Zitzman a fun place to learn. I appreciate the small class size as well. The School Board makes a great effort to 'watch out' for the kids by attending community meetings that effect school funding and growth.

If you already have a good student they will do fine in a child to teacher ratio of 1-26 in most classes. The ld department lacks patience and experience and most new teachers are young and lacks experience as well. Most children don't progress in title one and the principal puts too much blame against parents and lacks leadership.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
