I am Washington Parent and I love it! I have a KG & a 2nd grader. This is my girls 2nd year here... The teachers are wonderful and caring!!!

This is an excellent school. My child loves it and looks forward to going to school everyday and learning new things. Teachers are outstanding and the principal is young, exuberant and makes sure, above all, the whole school is a safe environment.

One of the best environments that SLPS has to offer--though trying to implement Montessori philosophy, much less use the marvelous manipulatives remains an ongoing challenge we try to embrace. Don't ask about the paperwork! I do love my students and their parents--and we have the best staff! Since it's public P3-5th, it's free if you can get into our 'magnet' system.

I believe if the focus were more on what the teachers are doing and less on test scores then this school would be perfect

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.
