I'm conflicted the teachers seem to be great but the school is over flowing with kids. The classrooms are way too full. I've been told there is alot of bad things going on in the school by my child.

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.
