Our school districts have continually improved the quality of their facilities and staff to keep pace with the changing world, including a brand new Elementary School in 2015. Unlike urban schools, we have highly favorable student-teacher ratios which means no child gets left behind. Phelps County schools are consistently above both state and national averages on standardized tests making it just the place for a top-notch education with teachers who have the time to invest in each student's success. Plus, with excellent sports teams and partnering with our local Central Community College, students have greater opportunities for scholarships and secondary education.
