My children (1st, 4th, & 5th graders) are beginning their 2nd year at North Side. We love the small classes and individual focus on each student's needs. The directors and staff have a vision for the school, and we are glad we can be a part of it! It's a great resource for our neighborhood.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
