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.

          Attendance Rate 90/90

          47.8%

          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

          0%

          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
