Dodge City


The Dodge City school district in Kansas consists of 11 schools, including 8 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school, serving a diverse student population. While the district as a whole faces significant challenges, with most schools performing well below state averages, a few standout schools stand out in the data.

Dodge City High School stands out for its diverse student population, with 81% Hispanic, 14.2% white, and smaller percentages of other races. In contrast, the elementary and middle schools in the district appear to have less racial diversity. Miller Elementary is a clear standout, with the highest test scores in the district, including 64% 3rd grade math proficiency and 38.8% 5th grade science proficiency, well above the district averages. However, several other schools, such as Sunnyside Elementary and Central Elementary, have extremely low proficiency rates, well below the state averages.

The data suggests a strong correlation between student poverty and academic achievement, with the schools with the highest free/reduced lunch rates, such as Sunnyside (93.01%) and Central (93.89%), also having the lowest test scores. Additionally, the wide range in spending per student and student-teacher ratios may indicate challenges in staffing and resource allocation across the Dodge City district, with the schools with the highest needs appearing to have fewer resources per student.
