Twelve students in third through eighth grade scored advanced in both English Language Arts and Math at Newburg R-II School District. “There are only 12 students, so that indicates that this is a really big deal,” said Newburg Superintendent, Dr. Lynne Reed.

The students received their awards at the Newburg R-II School District Board of Education Meeting after taking the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) in Spring 2018. The MAP assessments test students’ progress toward mastery of the Missouri Show-Me Standards.

“The kids worked hard, judging from how full this room is, the amount of moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, and aunts and uncles who have reinforced the value of education, we really appreciate you partnering with us to make sure these kids have a successful educational experience,” said Reed, on Jan. 22.
