I also feel that the instability of an administration team has impacted my child. The bus has also been an unstable area of constant change and disruption. My child loves going to school and as a parent, I feel listened to when I have a concern. Overall, my child is receiving a well rounded education and we should be proud of our school!

Kratz has been a great school for us. I have never seen such a great group of teachers going out of their way to ensure our children are receiving the best education available. I have two areas of concern at Kratz: Administration - Our school in recent years has had a hard time in maintaining a principal and vice principal. I feel the children would prosper more if we had some stability in this area. I know normally this is out of Ritenour's control. The second area is classroom sizes. Overall I feel the teachers and staff give their all to making our childrens life a little bit better

I used to go to this school. It has exceptional teachers, great office staff, enriching extracurricular activities, and a below average school-PTO relationship.

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.
