Best Public Schools in Zip Code 68938


The 68938 zip code area is home to 4 schools, including 2 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, all part of the South Central Nebraska Unified 5 district. The standout school in this data set is Sandy Creek Middle School, which has consistently ranked highly in the state and boasts impressive test scores, with proficiency rates well above the state and district averages in both English Language Arts and Math.

In contrast, the other schools in the area do not appear to be as strong. Sandy Creek High School and Sandy Creek Elementary School both have lower statewide rankings and test scores that lag behind the state averages. The Clay County Learning Center - Fairfield, which serves only pre-kindergarten students, does not have enough data to make a meaningful assessment.

The data also reveals that the schools in this area serve a relatively high-need student population, with free/reduced lunch rates ranging from 44% to 50%. Additionally, while Sandy Creek High School has the highest spending per student at $28,230, this does not seem to be translating into better academic outcomes, suggesting that simply spending more money may not be the sole solution to improving school performance.
