The staff are qualified and get to know the kids. Our children like the principal very much.

As a parent I am very pleased with the care and concern each and every staff show to the students---and they really care! The staff are very well qualified, and really get to know the kids. The principal knows all of their names, has regular contact with them, and helps to create a very warm environment. The kids excel as all scores and data show. The children are well behaved and have positive attitudes about learning and helping each other learn. I can't say enough positive about the school.

This is a wonderful school. Though it is the lowest socioeconomic school in Lindbergh School District, they have the best teachers, the best behavior, some of the best MAP scores in the State of Missouri let alone their own district. I can't say enough about the nurturing and caring environment of this school.

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.
