What wonderful staff they have at this school! They have great integrity, very caring and supportive. They offer plenty of opportunity to be involved in your child's education. The best principal in town. Thank you to all the staff for your dedication and hard work.

My daughter couldn't be doing better. She enjoys art, music, and gets to be involved in PE 3 times a week. There are not a lot of parents involved in her class, though the school offers plenty of oppertunity for us to be involved. The princial is the best in town. He's always in a great mood, and helps out throughout the 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.
