Show Me KC Schools

For many families living within the Kansas City Public Schools' boundaries, gathering information about schools can be a confusing and overwhelming process. Show Me KC Schools is the only education nonprofit in Kansas City focused on helping families find the right school for their children in the heart of our city. We accomplish this in three key ways - our online school guide, which features critical information about every school in the Kansas City Public Schools' boundaries; our annual K-12 City School Fair, which brings together over 50 district, charter, private and parochial schools; and our School Tours KC program, which coordinates a series of tours to four schools over a five hour period with parents, early childhood educators and community members.
