My son is struggleing in his classes due to his own behavior. The teachers at Jardine have done an excellent job of keeping me informed and working with me to find out what will be helpful for my son to succeed.

Jardine Middle School has an excellent telementoring program organized by the FACS class (Ms. Thomas) and www.telementor.org. Through the program, students are encouraged and helped directly to develop and set goals, interact with industry professionals (the volunteer mentors), and share their results with their classmates. If your child has the need to succeed, he/she should be encouraged to know that positive programs like this exist in Jardine Middle School. While I am just one of many mentors, my impressions are that Jardine students are encouraged to learn, share, and give it their best.

Our family has 2 Jardine students an 8th and 6th graders. We have been please with the teachers, always acknowledging them in the halls, like at Conferences, and Open house affairs. The Teachers and Staff are very competent and supportive of the students. They expect good things from the students so in turn they receive good things back, behavior, grades and respect of everyone. My students feel safe and enjoy the atmosphere, and feel confident in the learning process. I rate this school a 10!

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.
