Great Bend


The Great Bend school district in Kansas consists of 7 schools, including 5 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, serving students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance and student demographics across the schools, with Jefferson Elementary standing out as the top-performing school, while Riley Elementary and Eisenhower Elementary face challenges with low proficiency rates and high poverty levels.

Jefferson Elementary is the highest-performing school in the district, ranking 158 out of 660 Kansas elementary schools and receiving a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. It has the highest proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics across all grade levels, significantly outperforming the other elementary schools and the state averages. In contrast, Riley Elementary and Eisenhower Elementary have some of the lowest proficiency rates, particularly in Mathematics, and serve student populations with high rates of poverty, as indicated by their free/reduced lunch rates of over 90%.

The Great Bend High School also faces challenges, with a low state-wide ranking of 250 out of 327 Kansas high schools and a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, the high school stands out for having a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14, which is better than the Great Bend Middle School and some of the elementary schools. Overall, the data suggests that while there are pockets of excellence, such as Jefferson Elementary, the Great Bend school district faces significant challenges in addressing educational equity and supporting student success across all of its schools.
