One Team, One Dream

At Troost Elementary School, our staff strive to provide the best culture and environment each day for every student and their parents. On site we have a full-time counselor, nurse, Restorative Justice Coordinator, and Family and Community Liaison. We also have a part time Trauma Sensitive Clinician. We partner with VIP – the Violence I Prevent organization, D.A.R.E, Caring for Kids, Blue Hills Neighborhood Association, Rockhurst University and high school, and Church of the Resurrection to provide needed supports and tutoring for all of our students. As one of KCPS’ neighborhood schools, we work diligently to provide academic assistance for every student in our school. Troost staff build long-term bonds with students over the years, and parents trust the staff.

We have an award winning, all female (currently) Robotics team. We also host success mentorships, student advisory team, and before and after school care through LINC. Students participate in a variety of elective classes such as music, art, iSpark, physical education, and media. We look forward to continuing to expand opportunities for students through off site field trips and community partnerships.

We always need our families support! Please contact Michael Johnson, Family and Community Liaison, (816-418-1700) to get involved.
