North Kansas City School District Reviews

Overall the district had amazing faculty that genuinely cared about your success. There were lots of academic opportunities including AP classes, Honors courses, and a new program that was opened during my senior year- early college academy. I always felt safe at school as well as any school in the district. As you move through the years, more and more responsibility is placed on you as the student and less on parents/guardians. I personally wasn't part of clubs or organizations but I always saw signs up in the hallways for them, there were a lot to offer. The counselors are amazing! That is one thing I can say with no doubt in my mind. I used my counselor all the time and for the most part, they were always happy to help and they could almost always help. Early college academy was a weird transition, but my counselors were always there to help and make sure I was doing okay. The students weren't always the greatest but there isn't much you can change about that.

I have had an amazing experience with North Kansas City School District. The teachers are very involved and care about their students. There is things for everybody to get involved in and voice their opinions without being judged. Overall, I would recommend any school within North Kansas City!
Majority of white students, but many minority ethnic groups making for diversity.
Offers a solid education with all sports and a large variety of clubs. Located in a suburban setting in the the largest school district (North Kansas City Public Schools) on the Missouri side of Kansas City. A safety rating of B+ makes for a wonderful experience.
