Great school! My child is attending 7th grade here and loves it! Amazing staff, teachers, and administration. They care so much for their students at this school. Everyone, from the office staff to the prinicpal and vice principal, know my daughter - and everyone else - by first name. I wouldn't trade for any other middle school in town! Sometimes 'ratings' aren't everything.

I loved Eisenhower middle school. I was military so I had move to a new school, I was really scared. But they had a lot of support for military families. The school also has a lot of great teachers and staff. I miss it there.

I was a student, until I moved. Eisenhower is the best school in the Manhattan district. The teachers take time to help us, hardly give detentions, and are kids themselves. I want to say if you can choose any middle school Eisenhower is the best. Best elementary Northveiw. Love Yall, Favorite teacher Mr. Altevolt.

My son has had a wonderful experience at Eisenhower Middle School. The teachers are caring and take a genuine interest in their students. The administration does a wonderful job dealing with problems that do occur.

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.
