Honored Yet Humble

Dear Sumner Students and Families:


It is with great pride that I tell you Sumner Academy of Arts and Science has been ranked by The Washington Post as the best public high school in the state of Kansas. Brilliant students, talented faculty and staff, and a supportive school district have all contributed to making Sumner Academy shine. Please tell your friends and community members of this fantastic news. Additionally, Channel 4 visited Sumner Academy today and will televise a segment on our achievement this evening at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.


Thank you for all you do,


Jonathan Richard
