I honestly think that Strafford High School gives out more homework than our kids can handle. They have too much stress as it is. I also think that some of the policys are a bit ridiculous. Not on everything but on a few of them that ive heard while discussing them with my daughter. I understand that education is very important and very serious. I just think that putting all of the homework on them when they already have Jobs, sports, after school activities, starting to drive. Im just concerned not only for my daughter but for the rest of the students. Thank you for your time.

Look at Cindy's sentence structure in her review, and ask yourself, was she really 'taught very good.' I also attended Strafford Junior and Senior High School. I saw the very best teachers leave, with the school board not willing to do what it took to keep them, while others were kept on staff. I know these teachers must be long gone, but the school boards inability to keep challenging and good teachers on staff says a lot about the quality of education. I was not prepared to move on to college after Strafford High School.

I am not a parent but I was at stafford for 11 years. It was a very good school. I feel that I was taught very good. I would recommend Strafford for your school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. 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.
