Providing activities and programs to inspire learning in every student.

At Faxon Elementary School, we love our students from kindergarten through sixth grade. We are very excited to have your child join us for kindergarten!

Our goal is to help your student develop a life-long love of learning. We have a strong literacy focus and offer students the DJ’s Discovery Den, an oasis where students can discover books to peak their curiosity and encourage reading.


Our goal is that all students feel safe, welcome and supported, ready to succeed each and every day. We can’t do it alone; our community partners are key to our students’ success.

Gen KC read to students, raise special program funding and help in the school however needed. Through a partnership with Scholastic, Faxon students receive new books to create their own home library. Partners in Learning volunteers join our students to share the love of reading and math each week.

As one of KCPS’ neighborhood schools, we offer a variety of different programs and services to help both the student and his/her family.

  • Free Before & After School Care
  • Free Breakfast & Lunch
