I am a parent, former coach, teacher of this school and I find in most areas that this school is the best that this area has to offer. It is a safe, respectful environment with outstanding people. The students are the best. The staff is caring and interactive. The community is supporting and friendly. I am not from this area so I view it with a different outlook than the Kansas natives. I recommend this school to everyone.
