The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Guide to Schools allows you to compare the performance of Missouri public schools and school districts in the St. Louis region.

Determining school quality is a vexing proposition. States like Missouri release a host of indicators — so many, in fact, that reaching any conclusion can be difficult.

No single measure — or even a combination of measures — can declare one school superior to another.  This guide seeks to help you navigate the numbers. It does so by compiling the state’s key measures of performance in one place, sortable by school and district.
