Manhattan High School
#12 Best Public High Schools in Kansas

Junior: I've jumped from school to school for a good part of my life; and with that I have had both bad and good experiences with different public schools. Manhattan High School is, comparably, a great high school. There are many extra curricular activities, the lunches have a good selection, and there's a lot of teachers that are honest and helpful to the students and parents. It also has options available for AP courses and free college credit courses that transfer easily between most of the schools in Kansas. The one thing that darkened my overall experience was the amount of homework in some classes. With working a part time job, out-of-school activities, and college level classes, I was getting very little sleep- if any. So, good school, but be aware of an increased workload from several nearby school districts.

Wabaunsee Senior High School
#64 Best Public High Schools in Kansas
- Mill Creek Valley Unified School District, KS
- 31 reviews
Senior: Wabaunsee High School is a small town, tight knitted community where everyone supports everyone. It’s in the heart of the Flint Hills in Alma Kansas. We are a 2A school who has multiple small towns joining into one to create a warming environment for learning. We are blessed to have incredible teachers of all ages and ranges of specialty. Being a small town school we love our sports! We have won multiple state titles, and have recurring state appearances in multiple sports each year. Our clubs are amazing also! The past four years i’ve attended Wabaunsee we have had plentiful state qualifiers in knowledge-bowl, FCCLA Star-Events, and multiple categories through FFA. While we do have a historic main building to our school, it is a bit run down. With funding being very tight we tend to just skip by, by only fixing the problems with our building by doing the least but most affordable way they can. It’s still a great learning, positive environment for student life to flourish.

Council Grove Junior/Senior High School
- Morris County Unified School District, KS
- 35 reviews
Senior: At Council Grove High school everyone is friendly. If you enjoy knowing everyone and being in a small class come to CG. We all appreciate each other and the hallways are friendly. The only downside to this school is it is either always way to cold or always way to hot. There isn't ever a happy medium for us students. The staff is great and know what they are doing. Some of the students are loud and obnoxious, but they get there work done. The school is very safe and on high security and that is always a plus when your child could be at risk. We don't have much here at Council Grove but our talents and education are great.

Mission Valley Junior/Senior High School
- Mission Valley Unified School District, KS
- 45 reviews
Senior: Mission Valley is a small school in rural Kansas between the communities of Dover, Eskridge, and Harveyville. One of the great aspects about Mission Valley is that there is a sense of family, community and unity. Even though students and staff come from all three towns, everyone is welcomed warmly and a part of Mission Valley. Along with the small school feature, however, comes a lot of gossip and rumors. The school, also being in the middle of a cow pasture, is a more distant than usual travel for the students. The connection between students, staff, and administration is outstanding. Mission Valley is a great school for those who like a community feel and want more personal relationships.
