High Plains Community Schools


The High Plains Community Schools district in Nebraska consists of two schools: High Plains Community Elementary School and High Plains Community Junior/Senior High School. While the schools have some standout academic achievements, they also face challenges in maintaining consistent performance and addressing potential equity concerns.

Both the elementary and junior/senior high schools excel in mathematics, with students scoring significantly higher than the Nebraska state average on standardized tests. The 8th grade students at the junior/senior high school also performed exceptionally well in English Language Arts, scoring 86% proficient or better, well above the state average. However, the schools' rankings on the School Digger website have declined in recent years, suggesting an overall decrease in performance.

The schools also differ in their student demographics and spending. The elementary school has a higher percentage of white students, while the junior/senior high school has a more diverse student population with a higher percentage of Hispanic students. Additionally, the junior/senior high school spends significantly more per student than the elementary school, which may be an area for further investigation. The junior/senior high school also has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating potential equity concerns that the High Plains Community Schools district may need to address.
