    KC has experienced a resurgence in recent years with a growing culinary scene. While Kansas City is known for its barbecue, the city has expanded its repertoire and became more diverse with a surprisingly vast variety of foods with some unexpected depth. The cost of living in KC is cheaper than in other major metro areas, while the average annual income is roughly equal to the national average. Daily necessities like groceries are generally cheaper in Kansas City.

    As one of the largest school districts in Kansas City, KCPS comes with a variety of challenges. That is why we need capable and talented teachers who are built to withstand any challenge that stands before them.
