Geary County Schools


The Geary County Schools district in Kansas consists of 15 schools, including 12 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school, serving a diverse student population. The data reveals stark contrasts in academic performance, with standout schools like Grandview Elementary and Fort Riley Middle School significantly outperforming the district and state averages, while others like Washington Elementary and Westwood Elementary struggle, particularly in Math and Science.

The smaller schools in the district, such as Grandview Elementary and Milford Elementary, tend to have higher per-student spending, lower student-teacher ratios, and stronger academic outcomes, suggesting that school size may be an important factor in student success. Additionally, the high free/reduced lunch rates at some schools, coupled with lower test scores, raise questions about equity of educational opportunities across the Geary County Schools district.

The strong performance of Fort Riley Middle School highlights the critical role middle schools play in preparing students for high school and beyond. Further analysis of the relationship between socioeconomic status and academic performance, as well as trends in school rankings and ratings over time, could provide valuable insights to support student success across the district.
