Central City Public Schools


The Central City Public Schools district in Nebraska consists of three schools: Central City Elementary School, Central City High School, and Central City Middle School. The district serves a predominantly white student population, with a significant proportion of students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Among the three schools, Central City Middle School stands out as a top performer, ranking 66th out of 238 Nebraska middle schools and earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school consistently outperforms the district and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency, with particularly strong results in Mathematics and Science. In contrast, Central City Elementary School has maintained a consistent 3-star rating, despite its strong performance in English Language Arts.

The district's schools face challenges related to economic factors, as evidenced by the relatively high free and reduced lunch rates across all three schools. Additionally, there is a significant difference in spending per student, with Central City High School spending significantly more per student than the elementary and middle schools. This variation in resource allocation could have implications for the district's ability to address the needs of its diverse student population and ensure equitable educational opportunities.
