It's more advanced now than when I went there. Plus there are more incentives for the kids to try harder and become involved. They grow their curriculum and extra curricula all the time. But done if the teachers are extremely bias about family names and who's who. They also have a school uniform now of Polos and khaki's/jeans that try are extreme more concerned about than more pressing matters.

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.
