I think this school has a high behavior standard. It's been a good thing. They don't uphold the dress code at all though which is very sad. To see little girls scantily dressed in booty shorts and low cut shirts when they are just developing into young ladies is just setting these girls and boys up for failure. Other elementary schools in the district enforce the code and penalize the kids by making them wear nurse scrubs, so I am unsure why this school doesn't seem to care. If it wasn't an everyday thing during the warm season, I wouldn't comment. Academically, I think they do a good job as a public school is capable. They had Chinese lessons everyday but I do not know if that will continue. They use a lot of new math techniques of anyone was wondering about that. I don't know if it's effective for the new state tests. They encourage reading with fun programs and incentives. If the principal would care about enforcing his dress code policy, the school would get a four star. If I hear and see the dress code enforced this coming year, I will comeback and change my review.

Three of our children have attended Pray-Woodman and our experience has been wonderful. Mrs. Jonas is truly gifted as a principal. She takes the time to know each child personally by name and freely gives hugs! My children have learned so much at Pray-Woodman.

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.
