A VIEW FROM ABOVE THE NEW KHS
   
A $50,000 grant was given to Kearney Public Schools students from the Eaton Corporation for two exciting projects. 
Kearney High School received $20,000 for an additional ‘Project Lead the Way’ computer science course.  The funding will provide training for two teachers in the PLTW computer science curriculum.  It will also provide the computers,  supplies and materials to launch the course in computer science which will begin in the fall of 2015. 
 
Bryant and Central Elementary Schools will receive $30,000 for a new ‘Brushes to Baton’ program.  The Brushes to Baton project is an innovative braiding of music and art programs. The teachers develop projects that have students using technology to create music and art pieces.  Those pieces will be displayed at the March music concerts and spring KPS arts honors exhibit at MONA.  The grant will equip the art and music programs at Bryant and Central with iPad devices and software as well as a mobile syncing and charging cart.  
 
KPS Superintendent Brian Maher stated that the Eaton Corporation has made a great impact on the educational programming available at Kearney Public Schools. “Eaton values education,”  said Maher.  They are funding innovative programs that provide exciting learning opportunities for our students.”

KHS on Newsweek’s Best US High Schools
Kearney High School made the Newsweek-Daily Beast's 2014 Top High Schools in the United States. ​“We have made a concerted effort to improve our graduation rate and increase Advanced Placement (AP) offerings for our students.” Said Dr. Jay Dostal, KHS Principal.  “In five years, we have gone from 4 AP course offerings to 13 and we are still moving forward. The Kearney High School staff has done an awesome job of preparing our students for college, career, and life readiness, so this is a tremendous honor that validates this hard work.​” Six indicators are used to compare public high schools:  graduation and college acceptance rates, college-level courses and exams, percentage of students with free or reduced lunch and the SAT/ACT exam scores.  Kearney High has a graduation rate of 87.6%, college bound students 64.8%, free or reduced lunches 38.5%, SAT of 1672 and an ACT of 22.1.   Over 19% of KHS students are enrolled in Advanced Placement courses and 69.6% pass the AP exams. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics there are approximately 30,000 high schools in the United States.
