Where there’s a will to learn in Leawood, there’s a way! People in this city take pride in their education. It’s important to them and it’s definitely a priority when it comes to children. This might explain why the area has one of the strongest education bases in the nation. Leawood residents are highly educated: 98.9 percent of the population (age 25 and older) have a high school degree or higher; 74.3 percent a bachelor’s degree or higher; and 31.1 percent have a graduate or professional degree.1

The city conveniently falls between two school districts – Blue Valley School District and Shawnee Mission School District. Both districts regularly receive state and national accolades.
