Which Kansas City Area School is Making the Grade?

You can see it in the commercials on TV and the ads in the paper...Back to School is just around the corner.  If you're a parent with children, the performance of nearby schools can can have a big impact on where you choose to live.  Great Schools, a non-profit website, is on a mission to improve education by inspiring parents to get involved.  Here you can see how each school is ranked based on performance on standardized tests in the elementary, middle, and high school levels relative to other schools in the state.  You will be able to see test results according to grade, stats on teacher-student ratios, diversity, and some schools even have parent reviews. Using a scale of 1 to 10, each school is given a score...a rating of 10 means that overall test scores are as good as or better than 90% of scores elsewhere.  You will be able to find schools for Shawnee, Lenexa, Overland Park, Olathe and more for the Kansas City area.
