Welcome to Chanute Public Schools!

                Located in the heart of southeast Kansas is USD 413-Chanute, a district whose teachers, administrators, support staff, bus drivers and school board members embrace the philosophy that your students’ needs come first.

                     Thanks to a local and business community that cares about and supports education, students are educated in new and updated facilities with classrooms equipped with the technological tools to educate a 21st century work force. The district’s 1800-plus students attend our 4A high school, middle school for grades 6-8 and elementary school for grades K-5. Lincoln Early Learning Center houses classes for preschool and special needs preschoolers. Another building holds the New Beginnings Academy and its computer-based alternative program for high school students and the Chanute Virtual Education Center, for those interested in earning a high school diploma online.

                The district’s 120 teachers and 200 support staff are great and grateful people. Through their dedication:    

  • Academic test scores continue to rise
  • ACT scores are above state and national averages
  • Graduation rate is above  87 %
  • 80 percent of CHS graduates continue their education after high school
