I am phillipsburg alumni, and I believe this is a great school to attend. As with any small town school there is cattyness, and everyone knows everyone's business, but you won't find a school not like that in any surrounding county. Also I felt very safe and I believe I got one of the best educations I could have gotten. When I went to college I felt completely prepared and not left behind what so ever. The councelor at Phillipsburg is very good at preparing seniors for life after high school. Education wise I believe we are above average and I would recommend this school to anyone. Trust me i attended the school for 4 years.

If your student is good at football this is a great school . If you are concerned about education and or mental health or physical safety then go somewhere else.

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.
