I like the way the principal knows each student. She makes a point of greeting parents by name as well. It has the feel of a small school, but because of the population size has a big school advantage of many classes for each grade. I have three Kindergardeners who have loved their teachers. Sometimes the communication between teachers and parents isn't the best, but that is going to happen anywhere. At least I have phone numbers to reach the teachers if I need. to.

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.
