My son's 1st grade teacher Ms. Schawlm is amazing. So informative and he just loves having her. I feel like he is so loved an welcomed in her class also.

Excellent school with great communication. I never feel like I cannot approach my child's teacher to gain information or just to ask how my child is doing. My child's teacher is very forthcoming with progress and behavior updates. The Principal sends out communications often via phone dialer and I receive emails from the school regularly with updated information.

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.
