I loved this school and miss the days when I attended here. The teachers were truely caring and supportive of me while I attended. I would send my kids there if I lives in KS still.

This is a great school for a middle class family. Great teachers that really care, very active community. Sports are not as important as education here so if your tired of sports politics this might be the place for you.

Good small town school where the parents are involved in the school as well as the community. Student population is not very diverse: middle class white. Courses in foreign languages and business topics are limited.

This high school is better than most in many areas. There are several very talented and dedicated teachers as well as a few who are poor. One very weak area is counseling. The administration, provisions for both special education and advanced students are very good.

Have had three children in the school system,one of which is now a senior at WSU and the last of the three will be entering the ninth grade in the 2004 - 2005 school year. Love the atmosphere provided for the children to learn in and the control of the student body that is maintained, unlike most of the larger school districts in the area. Am extremely pleased over all with the school system in Mulvane.

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.
