I definately do not like this Middle School. We have had nothing but problems so we ended up taking our disabled son out of this school. They will do anything to not do what they should regarding your child, especially special needs children.

The administrator, teachers, and support staff show positive evidence of working hard to make this school a great place for our children. As parents, we feel welcomed as a part of the educational team. The middle school years can be difficult to many children due to the changes taking place during puberty. We are so grateful that our district has a building for sixth through eighth graders...it's a place of their own and our children love it there.

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.
