Working in Center
Welcome to Center School District, one of the best kept secrets in Kansas City. The district offers one high school, one middle school, four elementary schools, an alternative high school and middle school, and an Early Childhood Center. Tucked between State Line Road on the west and Blue River on the east, the district serves students from 85th street to 114th Terrace in south Kansas City.
A low 13:1 student-to-teacher ratio provides smaller class sizes at each level. Center teachers average 12.2 years of teaching experience and 68% of teachers have advanced degrees, higher than the state average. At Center, we are “accredited with distinction” by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education – the highest level of performance.
