Student Performance

Standardized Test Results



Why It Matters

Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) tests are scored (or graded) according to four achievement levels: Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. The number shown here is the percentage of students who scored Proficient or Advanced. When comparing scores between years, please remember that the test Missouri gives has changed several times.

Please note that private schools are not required to participate in these exams.

In 2019, the average English score in Missouri was 48.7%; the average Math score was 41.9%, source

Attendance Rate 90/90


Why It Matters

Schools strive to have at least 90% of their students achieve a 90% attendance rate because kids learn best when they’re in school.

In 2019, 87.3% of Missouri students were in attendance at least 90% of the time, source.

Third Grade Reading Scores


Why It Matters

Third grade is the important time when kids switch from learning to read to reading to learn and is an important benchmark for a student’s educational development.

In 2019, the average 3rd grade reading score in Missouri was 48.7%, source

Student Growth

English Language Arts


Why It Matters

This data determines if individual students, compared to their peers, are making achievement gains over time in English Language Arts.

There are three categories possible: Floor (minimum), On Track (doing just fine), and Exceeding (outperforming their peers).

Parent Perspective


Ronald S. Airrington, Allen Village Parent

My son began attending the Allen Village School in August of 2016 as a Kindergarten student. My wife and I have never been so confident in a decision about our son’s education. We chose Allen Village based on their renowned reputation for academics, the focus on core values such as integrity and Allen Village’s multiple academic clubs.

Allen Village is truly a supportive community; we are always greeted by multiple staff members –including the administration– on any visit to the campus. The teachers in our son’s academy are nurturing yet focused on making our son a morally and academically strong world citizen. The school facilities are immaculate. The student classrooms are large and clean, and structured to be interactive.

Parents are required to contribute 10 hours of community service through several opportunities such as reading to students, attending school programs and participating in the Box Tops program. These opportunities have allowed both my wife and me a chance to be involved in the culture of a great school and have provided us a chance to be hands on in our son’s education.

Our son is now an avid chess player through the school sponsored Chess Club and is learning to read music and has had the chance to develop his art skills through their rich Integrated Arts curriculum. Overall, we are confident that everyday our son is in a safe learning and social environment. We both would highly recommend this school for any student grades K-12.

About Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center

The mission of Emmanuel Family & Child Development Center is to provide comprehensive, high-quality early care in a safe nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of young children ages’ birth to seventeen and their families.


EFCDC cares each weekday for more than 400 children, ages 6 weeks to 13 years. More than 91% of the enrolled families live below the federal poverty guidelines, most far below the guidelines. About 15% of the children are homeless or near homeless. Many live in battered women’s or homeless shelters or transitional living programs. Often, these families sleep on the sofas of friends or relatives, sometimes even living in cars, rundown hotels or abandoned buildings. There are several critical services no person should live without. EFCDC provides educational programs, healthcare, parent programs and emergency services to the children and families we serve. The Early Childhood Program at EFCDC provides hands-on learning experiences, supportive teacher interactions, and language-rich environments for over 200 children between the ages of 6 weeks and 6 years. We also provide educational services to children 5 to 13 years through our Before- and After-School Program. In our Before- and After-School Program, children receive tutoring, homework help, supervised outdoor play, peer support groups, and more.
