My school is MSHS and i am a freshman there this year. I went to MSES and MSMS. You can not find another school as great as these schools! There are a lot of extra activities! The high school already feels like family and I cannot wait to see what the years to come bring me.

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.
