    I have 3 children in this school district (14, 9, 5). I couldn't be more pleased! The teacher's always show a sense of ownership and compassion for the children. I too adore the diversity of the student body and feel this will serve my children up well in the future. Need I mention that Piper was rated the #1 district in Ks last year? Also as a level set my two oldest spent K and K-5 at Gardner Edgerton. My oldest has been in an IEP since the get go and frankly wasn't placed on a trajectory to graduate at peer level. The younger child mastered K in the ffirst quarter. They BOTH had to step up their game in Piper. The oldest finally started being challenged with the stated goal of being out of IEP ASAP. The younger was almost put in an IEP because he was behind in reading! Both children have handled the challenge well and are doing very well at Piper. Gardner-Edgerton was supposedly a "school of excellence" as well but I don't understand how. The leap in curriculum was substantial!

    I just rated the school and forgot this part. I do love the diversity and small town feel of the school.My child feels good here much better than the Johnson County school she was in last year. My score may change but it's a little early in the year right now--so this is pretty good so far i think

    Piper schools are now on par with any in Johnson County. The schools have excellent teachers (teacher of the year award winners), excellent diversity, and still possess a small town feel.
