Annual Performance Report-State Accountability

Annual Performance Report (APR) is our state comprehensive evaluation tool. Last year we received a 14 out of 14! The state's evaluation standard measures student performance in math, communication arts, graduation rates, attendance rates, ACT averages, vocational course offerings, advanced course offerings, and many other standards to gauge a comprehensive picture of how the school performs!

Our 5th cycle for MSIP (Missouri School Improvement Program) is out. In 2012-2013 we scored a 91.1%. In the 2013-2014 school year, we scored at 97.1%! For 2014-2015 we scored 93.7%, We are so proud of our staff and students as well as the parents who support us in leading the area in academic achievement!

*The district receives the score from the previous year at the beginning of each school year.

We scored a 97.1% on the APR for the 2013-2014 school year.

2014-2015 school year APR was 93.7% with a hold harmless provision due to the state legislature requiring a review of the state learning standards.
