The Kansas City public school system strives to not only teach students, but to have students teach as well. The school district hopes to achieve this through inquiry-based instruction that involves active learning that is project-oriented and seeks collaboration, striking a balance between structured goals while not overlooking chances to improve.

A popular and highly rated school in Kansas City is Lincoln College Preparatory Academy. The school works to provide a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum to all students attending. It's located on Woodland Ave. in the heart of the city, making it convenient for a wide range of students. Another great choice for those just moving to the area with children is Nashua Elementary. An extensive library, hands-on staff, plenty of fun and interesting clubs, extracurricular activities and sports are well-maintained. Nashua is located on NE 114th St., near the edge of the northern suburbs.

Kansas City Neighborhoods

There is a wide variety of very livable local communities in the city offering residents options for finding their perfect place. From a vibrant downtown with a wide range of entertainment options to quiet, leafy suburbs, university districts and retirement communities, KC has it all. Here's a look at some of the choices there are for people considering living here.

Downtown: Some cities have a downtown that is for working and not much else, but not KC. This downtown is for living as well. Trendy lofts, upscale condos and affordable studios are interwoven with great nightlife choices. River Market has incredible entertainment, restaurants and pubs.

Platte Gardens: The areas surrounding Kansas City International Airport offer a nice mix of green space, industrial zones and suburban living. To the east of the airport and going toward Hwy 169 is Platte Gardens, with luxury homes around golf courses and condos near older residential sections featuring mature landscaping and tree-lined streets.

Westport: Literally a former port, it was a departing station for wagon trains heading west. These days, it's an eclectic neighborhood between the near-downtown section of South Hyde Park and the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Brookside and Waldo:Located in South KC, this area is charming Americana with a bit of international flair here and there. A nice variety of shopping experiences with a big number of mom-and-pop shops mixed in with single-family homes, mid-range and upscale rentals and employment zones make this community special.
