The school building is very clean and nice and new the nicest we have seen. But the students are out of control. Ms Shuvchuk the principle is cute and nice but doesn't seem to know what's going on or know what to do about it.

McGregor has a very nice new school building but the staff needs renovated as well... Children are not recieving appropriate discipline, and some are so out of control they are endangering other students. Parent envolvement can't be the only issue because this school requires everyone to sign a parent commitment letter. They should be signing the commitment letters!

McGregor Elementary is a school filled with caring individuals with little to no resources available to them. The teachers are stressed out, the students are stressed out. Even the janitorial staff is stressed out. It is really too bad because it could be a wonderful school, but there is so little parent and/or community involvement. My child went there for one year and I got him out of there and into another neighborhood school where he has thrived and the teachers are not so stressed out that they freak out over every small event.

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.
