Good Teachers overall...a few duds(Social Studies and a Math) Like the homework process and the curriculum content. Parental involvement lacking but little is done to actively reach out to parents...often depending on students to carry notices home. A child that will do well at any school, will do well here. A child struggling/average will find communication and support lacking unless you are a major advocate. Teachers can be contacted in the evening. Few reach out unless it is a behavior issue....not on academic issues. I went to one parent conference to find the info completely wrong that was delivered...days absent, work turned in, reasons for performance..it was corrected. The Teachers/Assistants do not always act as role model behavior...refer to kids in negative terms and use slang terms to describe a child. The teaching staff as a whole is better than the prevailing school district and the Principal is a strong advocate for his teachers, parents, and kids. I do not like the office telephone situation... most times you leave a msg..sometimes they fail to return call. After school activities and special projects are good. Not a bad choice but not stellar.

As a newer school they still have a few kinks to work out. However the school is great! It is not for everyone so if you and your child are not willing to put in the work this is not the school for you. For parents and children that are will and want to put in some hard work the will get an excellent education.

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.
