Welcome to CPS
As we near the end of the first month of the 2017-2018 school year, I want to share some great news about our school system. Crete Public Schools has a long history of being committed to the education of every child. We pride ourselves on being an advocate for the whole family.
The additional mile we go in CPS is never more evident than the after school programs. We provide an after school program for all children at every building. For more information, please contact your building principal.
We are very proud of our students, teachers, and support staff. Each person working together for positive results is a hallmark of Crete Public Schools. On the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test or Nebraska state assessments, our students consistently score at or above the state and national level.
We offer a challenging curriculum to every learner. We strive to make yearly academic growth an attainable goal for all students. At each building we have several devices for the students to increase their knowledge of technology. The high school has a 1-to-1 chromebook program which provides a computer for every student.
The positive attitude and whole child approach is reflective in our student enrollment increases. From the first day of school, August 2016, to the first day of school, August 2017, Crete Public Schools increased 107 students. This is the largest gain in student population since 1959.
For new families to Crete – Welcome to our extended CPS family! For families calling Crete Public Schools home, thank you for supporting your local public school and the teachers and staff educating your children.
