K-12 School District
North Bend Public Schools
North Bend Central Public Schools was reorganized as a K-12 school district in 1998. The school district includes three communities: North Bend, Morse Bluff, and Ames. NBCPS enrolls approximately 460 students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Its facilities include a K-6 elementary school and a central junior-senior high school campus.
North Bend Central Public Schools prides itself on the academic and activities accomplishments of its students. NBC High School belongs to the East Husker Conference and participates in a variety of athletic, fine arts, academic and vocational activities. Approximately 90 percent of our students will attend a 2-or 4-year college or technical school after graduation and NBC graduates were recently rated as having the highest freshman success rate at the University of Nebraska (Lincoln) campus.
The faculty at NBCPS has a long list of honors for teaching excellence including three Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching and the Great Plains Communications Teacher of the Year winner for 2008. The average years of teaching experience for NBCPS faculty exceeds 22 years and nearly 60 percent of the faculty hold Master's Degrees. All NBCPS teachers in core subjects meet the "highly qualified" standard of the No Child Left Behind Act and approximately 94 percent of all secondary courses are taught by specifically endorsed teachers.
NBCPS students have consistently met all state and federal standards of yearly progress since the inception of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2001.
