Palmer Public Schools


The Palmer Public Schools district in Nebraska consists of two schools: Palmer Elementary School and Palmer Junior-Senior High. While the high school is a standout performer, ranking 59th out of 215 Nebraska high schools, the elementary school lags behind, ranking 331st out of 459 elementary schools in the state.

The data shows that Palmer Junior-Senior High has made significant improvements in recent years, jumping from a 1-star to a 4-star rating. The school's test scores are notably higher than the district and state averages, particularly in ACT English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. In contrast, Palmer Elementary School appears to be performing below average, with a 1-star rating.

The disparity between the elementary and high school performance may be influenced by socioeconomic factors, as the elementary school has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Additionally, the significantly higher spending per student at the high school level compared to the elementary school could be a contributing factor to the performance gap. Addressing these disparities and ensuring equitable resource allocation across all schools in the Palmer Public Schools district could be an important focus for the district's leadership.
