My child really enjoys this school and is eager to learn. If she has trouble in a subject the teacher can be reached at home to help.

I am very pleased with the overall education my children have received. The schools lack playground equipment however they make up for the shortcoming with teacher/student involvement. I am impressed with the clean, safe, and warm enviroment the school provides.

Great school! Would be nice if it had more playground and parking space. My kids have loved going back to school every year after summer vacation.

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.
