Trying! We are working with what we got. New administration is trying to bring teachers pay to where it should be to help retain teachers. We have passionate, involved parents- who want the best for their children. We have many good programs- including Horizons (a gifted program) and the A+ program to help children with college.

We have a very small school district so each child is known personally by the staff. This makes them feel safe, and part of the school community.

This is a great little school,my son started reading in kindergarten last year,they have a great Accelerated reading program! All of the teachers are great, they really care about the kids and the school! The only thing I have found wrong with the school is the lack of parent and community envolvement, there are a few of us parents that show support and help out and volunteer our time for our kids hopefully this will improve. I love PHES!

The teachers at our school are great. My son is a slower learner and everyone of his teachers have taken the time to help him, rather than just ignore his problems. They helped us figure out ways that he would learn better and he has excelled because of this and has gone on to middle school. The principal is very involved with the kids and their parents, such as calling a parent to let them know that their child is a good student and to thank the parent for their help as well. It is a very child oriented school.

The new elementary principal appears to be much more efficent and concerned about the students. Unfortunately, other than a select few parents are not as willing to get involved. There is little support for civic groups other than just the sports programs, which as we all know do not make the futures of our young people. They may help, but are not a backbone to build upon.

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.
