We love the Pleasant Hill School System. Teachers are the best and really communicate with the parents. Great opportunities for the kids. Great music and theater departments. I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else!!!

Very satisfied with the PHES - from the secretaries to the principal. Wonderful teachers! It's been a great experience for my first child and I will feel very good about sending my youngest there in several years!

The teachers and principal at this school- do not communicate. Very unprofessional organization. The Middle School and Primary School in this area are both wonderful. The Elementary school- that's another story. Very dissatisfied with the feedback, communication, discipline, etc.

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.
