Kansas is home to almost 3 million people, and 25% of those are under 18-years-old. That’s a lot of kids in school, which means parents are always looking for great education opportunities to make sure our kids are keeping up with the rest of the world. If you were wondering, there’s a handful of areas to look at when most schools are measured. Academics, teachers, diversity, clubs and activities, college readiness, and health and safety (plus a couple other things, such as sports). Here’s the top 9 school districts in Kansas, out of 272 total, according to these standards. Time to grade the schools—instead of the other way around!
