District Highlights
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.  You can find out more information at:
