About Centre

Centre School District USD 397

The Centre School District was established in 1958 and is a rural community consisting of 400 square miles along the scenic Flint Hills of Kansas. It is comprised of the six communities of Lincolnville, Lost Springs, Ramona, Tampa and Pilsen located in Marion county and Burdick in Morris county. The district's locations is ideally located, about an hours drive from the center of several larger cities including Salina, Manhattan, Emporia and Wichita. The K-12 building is located on a 25-acre tract off Hwy 77, two miles north of Lincolnville.

Most of the district patrons are involved in farming and ranching or services related to the agricultural business community. They are hard-working and support their local school through attendance and participation in school and community-sponsored events.

Centre has been on the cutting edge of creating an engaging learning environment for students. People have come from across the state to visit our little school in the middle of the wheat field to see what "could be" for students and to get ideas for student engagement, which includes: 

      - Small class sizes, teachers that care and help prepare students for life after graduation;
      - Technology driven, one-one Apple laptop initiative for middle and high school, iPads and iPods for            elementary students; 
      - Strong emphasis in Project-Based Learning, which includes a student run coffee shop "The Centre          Perk", podcasting, iHigh livestream;
      - Character education;
      - Vibrant Leadership Team and Teachers;
      - MTSS
      - Consolidation to one school building;

Centre also houses the Kansas OnLine Learning Program which is a virtual learning environment that allows non-traditional students a way to earn their high school diploma or work on furthering their education in an at-home setting.
