Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The public schools in this district do not go to 6th grade. Your information is incorrect and very confusing for families looking at this site to aide them in finding schools. You should update your information to make it accurate.

I was a student at Black Elk and I now attend Kearney High School in Kearney, Nebraska. The school is wonderful and the teachers really made me feel welcome when I moved to that school in the middle of my elementary career. But if there is one problem with this school it is the ethnic backround of the students. I moved to Kearney when I was going into sixth grade. The differnces of my new school compared to my last were the ethnic backrounds. It was a real shocker. My only concern with this school is that your childern may not be learning how to accept people of differnt races. This school is also only K-5.

My three children have attended Black Elk for the past two years. We have been very happy with the quality of education they are receiving here. The teachers are excellent. All of the teachers we have been involved with are interested in providing both a good education and a positive learning enviornment. My children are treated with respect and as a bonus the teachers really care about my children. I always feel that the teachers are available and willing to speak to me about any concerns that I may have. I know many people who have moved into a neighboring elementary school's district, but have elected to keep their children at Black Elk. I think that speaks volumes about their satisfaction with the school.
