I go to Indian trail .... We'll almost I'm going into sixth grade and I was scared at first and middle school is scary but Indian trail and it's staff made me feel at home when we went to check out the school so in my opinion Indian trail is the best middle school in Johnson county (that's public)

Indian Trails Principle Becky Vrbas is strong in values and has wonderful school pride. She holds the teachers to higher expectation and the staff all have great attitudes. My kids have thrived at Indian Trail

This school doesn't treat students fairly when it comes to incidents reports especially with so called gang activity. They just kind of blow it off.

I was a student here. I have been to many different schools and this is the worst school I have ever been to.

Posted April 1, 2008

My son has been at several schools through out because of my husbands company moving us many times and I have to say school district 233 (Havencroft and IT has made us refuse to move) It is a great school system, adn they seem to have all the kinks worked out because it runs smoothly. The staff really works with parents as well as the students to promote success.

Friendly kids and a great learning experience. Teachers give every student a chance, even if it means sacrificing their own time to be with the kids.

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.
