Riverton Elementary School was awesome for my child. The attention given to each student is far better than any school my child has gone to. Being in the Military, my child has been to three different schools and we would have to say that Riverton far exceeded our expectations. Since we have moved, we can't wait to get our daughter back in Riverton.

I attended this school K-12 and so did my children. In my opinion there's none better.

Riverton is an awsome school, we moved into Missouri last year and now I realize what a great school we left behind. I would do anything to move back and put my kids back in Riverton school.

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.
