This is a great school if you have an average child. Don't expect any assistance if your child has difficulties or needs any sort of enrichment. The gifted/quest program is particularly bad and is just a self study program. No guidance from the teacher. If you insist on help, your child will simply be driven out of the program.

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.
