My daughter has attended Sappington since 1st grade (currently a 4th grader). She adores her teachers, feels challenged and enjoys the curriculum, and is grateful to be able to participate in programs such as violin, chorus, and LEAP (Lindbergh Early Achievers Program). We are proud to say our daughter is part of the district and especially the school because of the great teachers, wonderful principal and excellent staff. Every year we are even more pleased with the school's performance and are grateful that the community supports the district as well. We had considered many private schools and other communities to move to before choosing Sappington and the Lindbergh School District but we are extremely pleased with our decision. Go Flyers!

My daughter attends this school (Sappington) and it's great. If your looking for small class sizes (low student to teacher ratio), friendly and welcoming enviroment this is it.

We purchased our home based on this elementary school/district. The caring teachers and support staff are second to none. Small class sizes, attentive teachers, all geared to helping each child achieve their highest goals.

From the top down, the staff and administration and the faculty is great. A very active and involved Parent/Teacher group. The school has a long history and older buildings, but continues to give great educational opportunities to its students. The district has many many resources to help enhance children's education including gifted programs, music and sports. I've had my two sons there for 3 years and am very satisfied.

My son had a wonderful Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher. 2nd grade could have been better but 3rd grade looks like another wonderful experience. Great class size...nice and small.

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.
