I've attended KCK public schools my whole life. I learned so much from my teachers. My experience over all was great! What I liked the most about KCK public schools was how the teachers and staff actually cared about the well being of the students, making sure they did everything they could to see each student succeed. What I would like to see in the future for KCK public schools is better funding to keep amazing teachers and staff. Better funding to obtain better supplies for students.

Teachers are amazing and willing to do anything to help us with any work! I have been in this school district since I have moved from Los Angeles. Great District. Teacher and education is very good. One thing they do need to change is the way the food industry works within. They do not provide good food, or any snack bars. Besides that, its great! Great with diversity and sport academics. They all really push their students to do.
I enjoyed most of the staffs. Some teachers go out of there way to really help children and teens grasp the concept of a subject that they might have trouble with. Other teachers could care less. Regardless of that I grew up and attended KCKPS my entire childhood year and graduated top of my class at this last May! (2017) I made a lot of memories when many of the staffs, faculties, and students. There are some really special teachers who do make a difference, often times students scare them off. Please appreciate these hard-working Staffs/Teachers.
