The Topeka Public School district is an amazing diverse community. I graduated Topeka High School in 2020 and I can say that my experience there was like no other. The teachers there were always very helpful to all their students because their number one goal is to see them succeed. Not only is there an amazing staff but the community as a whole is very welcoming. My dad works at a Topeka Public Elementary School so I can say all of my claims with confidence because I know he loves his job working for this diverse community of people.
