This school would be better if they allowed students to take a break, they have way too much homework, no fun events planned for the students, like skating parties. The only fun the students have is recess. It's no wonder students aren't trying very hard, they're expected to be miniature adults, though the teachers are great.

This school has to be the best one I have ever had my children attending! The staff is always friendly and helpful, and go beyond teaching, they are all very caring, and sincere with parents as well as the children!

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.
