Help Support Our School! Please think of Gibbon Public Schools when those early magazine renewal notices start to arrive in the mail! Forty percent (40%) of the subscription price stays with the freshmen class to help fund their Junior/Senior Prom when you order from a student in the freshmen class (Class of 2018). They will be selling magazines this fall. Please remind your family and friends that the students would greatly appreciate it if they ordered or renewed their magazines from our school this fall. Thank you for your support!

High School Ranked in Top 50 in the State! The U.S. News and World Report recently recognized Gibbon High School as one of the top 50 high schools in Nebraska. The complete listing can be found at http://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools. This recognition was based on the Nebraska State Math and Reading tests for the class of 2013. Criteria for earning this ranking were the entire class’s proficiency level in the testing when compared to other districts and secondly, the proficiency level of our district’s “disadvantaged group” when compared to other districts in the state. A district’s “disadvantaged group” was defined as the ethnic diverse and low income population.
The district is extremely proud of this accomplishment. The district feels this recognition attests to the quality education being provided by the Gibbon Public Schools. If you have questions regarding this recognition, you are encouraged to call Larry Witt, Superintendent of Schools.
