Posted January 25, 2006

Strafford Middle School has a highly qualified and caring staff. The academic programs, while not superior, are good. The music and art programs are acceptable, though options are limited due to the required scheduling. Sports available to 7-8th graders include cross-country, basketball, volleyball, football, and track & field. Other extracurricular activities are fairly limited. There is a wide range of parent involvement.

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.
