Student-teacher ratio


MAP proficiency rates

Because the Missouri Assessment Program only assesses students in grades 3-12, there are no scores to show for preschools, early childhood centers, or kindergarten schools.

Annual Performance Scores

The state assigns Annual Performance Report scores to each school based on a wide range of metrics including results from state standardized tests, student growth, attendance, graduation rates and whether students leave high school ready for college or careers. Unlike districts, individual schools do not receive an accreditation designation, but they do still receive scores. Scores above 70 are considered to be in the fully accredited range. A score between 50-69.9 falls in the provisionally accredited range, and scores below 49.9 fall the unaccredited range.

Editor's note: The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education did not calculate APR scores for any schools in 2018 and 2019. Many high schools and middle schools also did not receive APR scores in 2017. See the about page for an explanation.
