If your child has any sort of disability this is not the school to go to. They are horrible to work with. The front office staff comes across as rude and very uninviting. I have never been so disappointed in a school!

Four Stars I like that the teachers are available to talk to you when you need to find out something about your child.

The intermediate faculty would benefit from reading: "Kids Who Can't Sit Still" in the Fall 2011 magazine of the National Education Association. Children who have been diagnosed with ADHD and are being medicated already should still have accommodations within their classroom like any other disability. Would you expect a diabetic to grow out of their insulin when they reach a certain age? It is the same with ADHD. Aunt of Intermediate child

The faculty at El Paso Elementary really care about the children and their education. We welcomed our new Principal this year and great things are to come! I am thrilled with the parent participation this year. The academic programs offered at El Paso are the best. Our testing scores prove it! I really enjoy our elementary school.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
