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 school district has overall had a very rough past and that is a very blatant fact to almost anyone who enrolls their child into the school. However, even with this rough history, the Kansas city school district has overall helped to set me up for success, offering me a very strong education. I'm sure that somewhere there are better experiences but for what it is, the Kansas city school district will likely get the job done if done right.
