Unfortunately part if the problem lies in the state, as MO is behind compared to other states. We move due to my job and comparatively, the curriculum is not at the same level. For the school's part, the motivation and drive in the teachers is lacking and it feels like they are there for their required hours and that is all. After school events and programs are not attended by teachers or promoted by them and there is a great disconnect between the school and the parent. I'm blessed with great children, both behavioral and academic wise so this is not a complaint because of disciplinary issues common to these sites; just a comparison to what we have been fortunate to experience at other schools and have found truly lacking here.
My son attends this school & I have to say that I really love this school & so does he! The teachers are very kind & work with your child based on their needs. I also love how it's only K-2nd grade & then 3'rd - 5th is @ Lewis & Clark. It's a great set-up & the school is top notch!
