Kansas City School District Reviews

I attend St. Teresa's Academy near the Plaza, and it feels like my home away from home. I transferred here after my first semester of sophomore year from a different school, and I have never looked back. I have formed lifelong bonds with my teachers here, and we even have a lovely campus cat, Truman, who roams the quad and greets me on my way to first period! The only thing my school lacks is diversity, with over roughly 70% of my school identifying as Caucasian.

The Kansas City school district has improved its educational system providing students with a safe place to study as well as electronic devices to aid students with homework, essays, and applying to colleges! Wonderful district filled with teachers who genuinely care about students education in the urban area.
The Kansas City School district is a great school district. It prepares students for college in a safe environment. The students are very diverse which allow for the students to learn about one another. The students are able to have a good relationship with their teachers, which make them comfortable to participate in classes. The school districts teachers make the students comfortable in their learning environment. The school course level challenges the student academically in order for the student to learn. The Kansas City Missouri School District has helped me challenge myself academically and learn more about the curriculum.
