Guide to School Open Houses in Wichita 2017-2018

Thank you to the schools that chose to sponsor this guide and for serving our community of Wichita Area Families!

Choosing a school for your child – whether it be private, public, homeschool or otherwise – can be intimidating and overwhelming. There are so many options out there, and what better way to help narrow down your decisions than to visit a school in person! Below you will find some local schools and their open house dates or ways to connect to set up a tour. And as with any large decision, we encourage you to do your research. Ask other moms in your neighborhood group, or search your group to see what other moms have to say by typing “school” in the search box of your group! Because who knows more about local schools than Wichita moms themselves?
