White Church Elementary is THE BEST elementary school in Wyandotte County if not for all of the Kansas City metro. Their principal is an outstanding administrator, leader and educator. He and knows the name of every student in our school and works exceptionally well with the parents. The teaching faculty is top notch at every grade level. The teachers strive to make a personal connection with their students and make the best environment for their educational and personal growth. We have a very active parent's group (PAWS) that is constantly working to aid the faculty in numerous ways. Last year they raised funds to add improvements and equipment to the playground; amongst other projects. KSA scores for WCE students are some of the highest in the State as well.

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.
