Quality of academic programs is well above standard for Northeast Kansas. I myself attended Tonganoxie elementary school back in the 1980's. Tonganoxie Elementary has a conducive learning environment. Individual teacher instruction is available when a student is willing to ask for help. There are extracurricular activities such as baseball and flag football for a nominal cost. The music program involves the students in cultural awareness and learning about music itself. Art is incorporated into the learning experience as individual expression and cultural awareness. The level of parent involvement is good. The PTA fosters a good rapport with the parents and sends a positive image to students. This observation has come from living in other states in the last 15 years. The enrollment has boomed in recent years, without too much compromise put on teacher student ratios from when I was a student in the Tonganoxie School System. I am a 1991 Graduate and KS Regent's Scholar from Tonganoxie High School and lived most of my schooling years in the Tonganoxie School District.
