Are you asking the closest Elementary school to this location (713 N Eagle Pass)? If you look on the rental listing, there is a map that allows you to view schools near the property. For the listing you were referring to, the closest elementary school would be Deerfield Elementary school, which only about 1 mile away. I hope this helps. Good luck in your rental search. ... more

Why aren't Private schools rated? Because it's private! (Just kidding) -- Public schools are rated by public standards and private schools can be rated by test scores and the performance of their graduates. The student and student's parents/counselors/guardians, are challenged to research and validate claims made by the school(s). General information can be obtained online.
This brief is part of the Lawrence, Kansas, Bishop Seabury Academy webpage:

Bishop Seabury maintains an effective 6:1 student-teacher ratio and an average class size of 10-15 students so that teachers can offer individual attention to each student. Teachers know their students’ strengths and weaknesses, their habits, and their passions.

Academic excellence is driven by a strong and inspiring faculty, 85 percent of whom hold advanced degrees. Many are authorized to proctor College Board AP Exams. The Faculty at Seabury have received many awards recognizing them as committed and engaging educators who excel at teaching. Bishop Seabury academics emphasize a core curriculum, and our honors courses are tailored to this end. The six year academic program is a graduated and logical progression of study that prepares students for the rigors of college.

Our standardized test scores indicate the success of our academic program. Our average SAT score is 200 points above the national average, and at Seabury, it is not merely our best students who take the SAT. In Kansas, statewide participation in the SAT is 7%, whereas 100% of our students take the SAT. Our ACT scores average 26 (the national average is 21). And we have more National Merit Semifinalists per capita than our regional public schools or fellow independent schools.

Despite the success of our students on standardized testing, our teachers do not simply “teach to the test.” Our goal is to develop confident, engaged, and broad-minded young people who can be successful in the real world and truly become life-learners.
Is there a standard for assessing or evaluating private schools? I have always relied on parent and student testimonials.

The best source for this information is the school itself. Schools today are always looking for volunteers to support classroom teachers. Call and request information about their parent volunteer program. ... more
