We chose Resurrection for our two girls when we relocated to KCK last year because we wanted an environment that upheld our values as a family -- particularly the values of service, inclusion, and community. We loved the diversity of the Resurrection community, the rigor of an academic program with a strong focus on STEAM, and the neighborhood quality of the campus. Our girls have received incredible support from their teachers and have loved Resurrection for the daily classes and extracurricular opportunities. Our eldest has attended four different elementary schools (and that's a lot considering she's is in Fourth Grade) so I feel like we knew immediately upon touring the school-- it's a lovely facility and the hallways were brimming with creative energy and thoughtful student projects. We are excited to introduce our youngest to the school next year!

Just now NEWI love being a part of this school! Wonderful faculty and staff, leadership, parents, students, parish priests, and community. Resurrection is ahead of its time, having implemented project-based learning, the Growth Mindset, Project Lead the Way, Makerspace, and a STREAM Initiative before many other schools. There is a dedication to constant growth and improvement for the sole purpose of benefitting the students. Resurrection's future and its students' future are bright!

I was already familiar with Resurrection's reputation for quality education when I became a member of the school's Board of Trustees several years ago. Since then, I've seen first-hand the way the school's diverse student body thrives in the school's STREAM program. The emphasis on Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering the Arts and Math gives the students a truly well-rounded educational foundation that helps them thrive when they go on to high school and college.

We love this school! We sent our 3 children through Resurrection and we would do it again. The teachers really cared about our children and they got a good education and grew in their relationship with Christ.

We love this school! The staff and principle work so hard to help our kids learn and grow. They focus on innovative ways to teach STEM and math. We even got a 3D printer this year! My favorite part is the diversity of the students and the resounding message that we are ALL children of God who are special, unique, and in control of our actions.
