About Chisholm Trail
Chisholm Trail--Blazing a Trail Through Learning!
Chisholm Trail, located in Park City, Kansas, serves nearly 500 students from Pre-K-5th grade, as a neighborhood school in the Wichita Public Schools. Our neighborhood includes much of the northern border of the Wichita School district, bordering the Maize, Valley Center, and Circle school districts. Most of our students live in Park City, Kechi, and the surrounding area.Chisholm Trail offers a small-town atmosphere while still being a part of the largest school district in the state. Chisholm Trail is strongly supported by the Park City community and the Park City Pride group.Chisholm Trail gives back to the Park City Community through public service projects and by participating in the annual Fourth of July Parade.
At Chisholm Trail, our safe learning environment is framed in the belief that our students will develop into responsible, respectful citizens. We have a school-wide discipline plan that defines expected behavior and rewards students for positive choices. Our guidelines for success are focused on the Five Rs of Respect:
- Respect yourself.
- Respect your teachers.
- Respect your fellow students.
- Respect your school.
- Respect your community
Chisholm Trail offers services for students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, including all-day kindergarten, special education services for students with learning needs, as well as an Autism program to meet the needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Chisholm Trail also features a tutoring program. We also have a Circle of Friends Club that matches exceptional students with nonexceptional peers to provide role models for proper behavior, develop friendships and promote an inclusive atmosphere.
We are very proud of our parental involvement at Chisholm Trail. A strong PTO and Site Council support the mission of the school through tutoring, fundraising, and teacher support. We have a strong sense of community which enhances our partnership with parents and benefits all of our students.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and events, including Red Ribbon Week, State Assessment Pep Rally, Spelling Bee, Staff vs. 5th Grade Kickball Game, Balloon Launch and Field Day. We also hold special parent nights where parents and students participate in fun, themed learning activities such as "STEM Night." These evenings offer families the opportunity to become active participants in their child(ren)'s learning. Chisholm Trail invites you to join us at any of these events to help celebrate your child's learning and be an important part of their success!
