The teachers and staff at this school are dedicated and completely awesome. I was upset when my son first went to this school because I had heard such awful things. The problem is NOT the school, or its staff! The problem is the parents that don't give two shakes about their children, don't make them behave or do homework, yet want to blame the school system for their children's "failures." Until more parents in this neighborhood take some responsibility and get involved, nothing will change. Teachers can only do so much.

they give children NO respect what-so-ever, and treat them very badly. If the child has ADHD or a similar disease, they treat the child as though they are acting out by choice. They treat them as an inconvenience, not as their moto says that no child will be left behind. they treat them as a job, not with desire to teach and enhance the future of this nation.

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.
