Who We Are

  • Who We are

    Like any meaningful human endeavor, education can get pretty complicated. It’s easy to get so caught up in all the intricacies and differing perspectives that clarity gets lost and little real progress ever gets made.

    However, it’s exciting for us to say - and say with confidence - that Scottsbluff Public Schools remain focused. Goals are clearly articulated, priorities are well evidenced and we are getting better all the time.

    Our students are thriving in multiple areas of academics, athletics and activities. Test scores and graduation rates are up. The finest high school facility in the region was built thanks to strong community support. District enrollment continues to grow. Our students and our teachers are accomplishing great things together.
