100% MSIP 5 rating 2013 - 3 years of double digit student growth in each of the three tested areas - Intentional teacher development and proactive character education. Anyone who compares this school with any surrounding school (including within the district) and knows anything about the community...amazing commitment from all involved. Excellent leadership, superlative instruction, leaders in both curriculum development and instructional practices. There's no mystery why this building is a model that others emulate. Let's hope new administration at central office (who comes from a failing school) can stay away and let the good people at Murray work. Just a parent who knows a bit about education making observations from the empirical evidence

Having moved to the area about a year ago, I was very hesitant about going into a new school district, but, what we found were very caring, dedicated teacher who really cared about my child. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. It has been one of the best moves for our family. The teachers are always there to help answer any questions we have and they interact well with the kids during the day and anywhere they happen to see them after school at sporting events or at the grocery store or wherever.... great small town with totally awesome teacher.

This school district is horrible. They don't care about your children! As for learning, if your child is smart they will be ok, if they struggle they are set up for failure. Also, bullying is a horible problem that the school hides, ignors, and sweeps under the rug!! Don't send your child to this school.. Your child is just a dollar sign to them..

My children really like this school. I haven't any problems. They are learning and making friends. I've helped with a class party.

I totally agree with this post! It is the worst school I have ever sent my children too! They do not help your children they just kick them out! Please do not send your children to this school!!!

This school system is one of the worst school systems I have ever dealt with. They refuse to help where help is needed, unless it benefits them somehow, and give lame excuses as to why they can't or won't help. I would not recommend sending your children to any of the schools in the St. Clair, MO School system.

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.
