Both of my kids graduated from Maxwell. They had great teachers and wonderful experiences. Although we live in North Platte, we wanted our children in a smaller, more personal school. In Maxwell, they found a 2nd home.

I attended Maxwell from 7th through 12th grade. I optioned in from North Platte schools and was very behind when I got to Maxwell but ended up graduating with a 4.0. I wouldn't trade my time there for anything! I got a quality education while being able to explore my other interests in sports. I made so many amazing friends at this school and I still am able to go talk to my former teachers if I need help with anything! I've been graduated for several years now and they still remember me by name. Excellent school!

My son graduated from Maxwell a couple of years ago. He was valedictorian, had a 4.0 average, received a 30 on his ACT, and was awarded a Regents Scholarship (full tuition for four years) to UNL. He also was awared other numerous local scholarships. He received a quality education from caring teachers.

There are a few great teachers in Maxwell, but the quality of education and fairness of teachers, etc. has always been a problem.

I moved here from the West Coast about (20) years ago and I have put several kids through the Maxwell School system. I feel Maxwell has provided an excellent education for my children. I will also add that Maxwell is possibly the only school in the state that turns students away. Nebraska allows 'option' enrollment, a process that allows students from other districts (mainly North Platte) to go to school in another district of their choice. This system of competition among schools has made Maxwell School number one.

I went to Maxwell all my life and I loved it. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I made so many friends there and will have many memories.

I've been in this community FOREVER and have seen a steady decline in the quality of education provided by Maxwell school. I'll give it a below average rating, but it is probably closer to unsatisfactory. It depends upon who you are and your athletic ability as to how far you go in this school and community.

Maxwell deserves an 9 out of 10! It's not a perfect school, but the acedemic quality is above average, the student-teacher ratio is great, and for the most part the teachers & administration really care about the students. There is a pervading atomsphere from the janitor to teachers to principal to superintendant and most of the board that they are here to serve the students & their families not themselves or to promote egos.
