Warrensburg Middle is a great school. We moved here in January from a very chaotic school system. The staff helped my child transition very fluidly & she is still the honor student that she was in the other school. I am looking forward to her upper years & seeing how far she can go. The counselors actually do a great job of advising & guiding the students & I appreciate their hard work & effort. The principal keeps parents involved of changes so that your are kept abreast of events/activities/meetings, etc. A+

Warrensburg Middle School is excellent. Love the 6th grade teachers on the Pride side. My son is ADD and has to work extra hard. He received all A's in his core classes this quarter. He has been able to stay in the 'normal' classes for all of his classes this year. This has been wonderful for his self esteem. This school also has excellent administrators that care about the kids.

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.
