  • This school failed to let me know about my Daughters truancy until it was too late and when I would call to let them know she was sick they did not excuse it and when I called back to straighten out the problem they finally admitted they had made the mistake. Also they are way7 way too many bad influences at public schools which is why I am looking into private christian type schools for my Daughter

  • Topeka High is the best school i think i've ever gone to! I have good grades in there unlike middle school! that have a lot of althletic sports to offer us. They have soccer, vollyball, basketball, softball,
    football, track. They also offer us clubs as in S.R.O, cheerleading, flagteam, drillteam ect. so now u have a little (just a little) taste of my school Topeka High.
