Posted April 22, 2004

I attended this school over 30 years ago. Moved away, went to college, got married and moved back to raise my kids here. The schools are excellent, the teachers really care about what is happening. Not only in the classrooms, but in the students family life. If there are problems, it is easy to find a solution. The entire staff gets involved and makes things the best it can be. The classrooms are small enough so that each child gets the attention needed. Nobody falls through the cracks. It is a slower pace here. Its a great place to bring a family and raise your kids. The schools are great.

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.
