About USD 265 Goddard Public Schools
 

Leading in Excellence
From the first graduating class in 1918, Goddard Public Schools has proven itself a leader in educational excellence. More than 87% of our students continue their education in college or vocational training. Our students are recognized by the college community for the excellent scholastic preparation provided by Goddard Public Schools — recognition that is verified by thousands of dollars in scholarships and awards granted our graduates each year.

Goddard's administration understands the delicate balance between traditionalism and change. Our teachers understand the importance of preparing students for an international community. We have a tradition of seeking the best instructional tools from innovative education methods. Goddard students are well-educated, not merely instructed. As one instructor explains, “Goddard is leading, not giving excuses.”

A continual theme found in Goddard Public Schools is “Teachers Care.” In the midst of growing and changing times, we attract and keep outstanding teachers by offering quality surroundings accompanied by an excellent salary schedule.


Growing and Changing with the Times
Many families specifically choose to locate in the Goddard USD 265 because of our long-standing reputation for excellence and student achievement. Demographics and state assessment results for USD 265, are shown on the Building, District and State Report Cards link on the Kansas State Department of Education website, www.ksde.org. Goddard is located in south central Sedgwick County less than 5 miles from Wichita.

The area served by Goddard schools is basically bounded by Central Ave. on the north and Tyler Rd. on the east (in Wichita), and 55th St. on the south and Viola Rd. on the west, in rural Sedgwick County. (Please see the school district map for specific boundaries.) Bus routes cover the entire district.

Services for students with special education needs are provided through the Sedgwick County Special Education Cooperative. All federally mandated programs are available. The district also participates in the federal school lunch and breakfast programs. Students have the option of bringing their lunch to school or purchasing a lunch prepared by our nutrition services staff during the closed lunch period. Breakfast is available at elementary, intermediate, middle, and high schools 20 minutes prior to the opening of school, and during a morning break at the high school.


Preparing for the Future
Goddard Public Schools serves more than 5,500 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Equipment and facilities are continuously upgraded, keeping our students on the cutting edge of technological advancements giving them an advantage in both collegiate and vocational settings.
