Missouri Learning Standards


About the Missouri Learning Standards

The Missouri Learning Standards define the knowledge and skills students need in each grade level and course for success in college, other post-secondary training and careers. These expectations  are aligned to the Show-Me Standards which define what all Missouri high school graduates should know and be able to do.


The Missouri Learning Standards do not dictate curriculum.  Local district and schools make their own decisions about curriculum, instructional strategies, and materials and textbooks.
 

The Missouri Learning Standards:
• Establish consistent learning goals for all students.
• Provide a clear road map of academic expectations at each grade level.
• Prepare students for post-secondary education and a globally competitive workforce.
• Were designed to be academically rigorous, attainable for students and practical for teachers and districts.
