Pattonville continues to be among top districts on Missouri APR

The Pattonville School District earned a 96.6 percent score on the state’s annual performance report (APR) and continues to rank among the highest performing public school districts in the St. Louis region and the state of Missouri.

“Pattonville’s APR score continues to reflect the hard work of our students, staff, parents and community,” Pattonville superintendent Dr. Tim Pecoraro said. “Our focus remains on delivering high quality instruction for our students that is increasingly personalized according to students’ learning needs and dreams for the future. We’ll continue to work on assisting students in reaching their full potential and preparing them for life after high school.”

The APRs are part of Missouri’s school accreditation system, which is known as the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP). MSIP is the system used by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to review, accredit and recognize districts for academic performance. Based on a school district’s performance on a set of five standards established by DESE, a district is designated as accredited, provisionally accredited or unaccredited. The standards measured are:
  • Academic achievement - overall district performance on state standardized tests;
  • Subgroup achievement - the achievement of subgroups of students which includes African American/black students, Hispanic students, students eligible for free/reduced lunch, students with limited English proficiency and students with special education needs;
  • College and career readiness;
  • Attendance rate; and
  • Graduation rate.
Pattonville’s student achievement results remain above the state average in nearly every grade level and content area. In addition, the performance of subgroups of Pattonville students exceeds state averages by large margins in all areas.
