The administrative staff is wonderful. They have been very supportive and willing to help in anyway when something new with a child is given to them. The teachers are all willing to help the children learn any way they can.

Woodman is such an awesome school! The teachers and administrative staff are some of the greatest in the district. The parents are supportive and active in the school. Of course both of these factors contribute to how amazing all of the children are! Go Woodman!

What do I love about Woodman? What do I not love about Woodman!?!? The teachers, staff, and administration truly care about our kids and their families. They are always looking for new ways to interact with kids and families...ways for the kids to achieve and learn in a caring environment. They offer a diversity of activities at differing times to secure the most involvment between families and students....curriculum activities, movie nights, skating parties, open houses, etc. I'm happy my two youngest children attend Woodman Elementary.

My son attended Rea Woodman from K-5 and my daughter from K-1 and I have nothing but compliments for thier teachers and staff. Mrs. Tracy in particular made such an impact on both of my children, she is amazing! Every person I had contact with down to the office staff were helpful, kind and genuinely cared for my children. 5 stars is not enough for this school!

This school was Fantastic! I normally am no fan of public schools, but this one is so warm & genuinely care about children like no other I have seen. When we had to move out of state I actually cried because I hated having to loose that school. They did wonders with my daughter!

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.
