Posted June 13, 2003

My sons will start their second year of high school and their second year at MdCV. They came here after being homeschooled through the junior high years, and have adjusted fairly well. They were average students in grade school at their former school. They continued to be average students when I homeschooled them and they still struggle to get perfect or above average grades. MdCV has been wonderful, they like school and the teachers (as much as any teenage boys will admit). The teachers seem to care about all the students. Even though it is a very small school the types and interests of the students are varied and amazingly enough they all seem to respect each other and get along well. The principal/superintendent seems like a genuinely nice guy and allowed my kids to attend even we are out of district. So I would say as a public school MdCV get a high ranking from me. But my kids only have 3 years to go (hopefully) of high school, and I am trying not to get overly involved as I was in their previous school. If you give your time, heart, and pride to a school and get that crushed, you may not let yourself 'fall in-love' too deep with the next 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.
