Within the past two years, Sumner high school has changed dramatically by the Administration team and teachers focusing on teaching and learning instead on discipline matters. The students are respectful and are learning college career strategies that will help them to compete with members within society. Sumner high school is living up to its standard of Excellence.

About the tests

The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
