Although I am concerned about the direction Kansas schools are presently taking, I have been extremely impressed with the greatly qualified and caring teachers and administration, and hence, exemplary quality of education provided at Indian Woods. My child has had some wonderful opportunities in extracurricular activities, and I'm sure that if the State budget was not squeezing them monetarily, they would choose to have even more. Though limited to some degree by demographics, the school itself celebrates diversity and has been very accepting of my child.
