Sidney Public Schools is proud to announce we are participating in the Safe2Help reporting system. This is an anonymous reporting system run by the Boys town crisis hotline staff. Safe2Help gives students, staff, and community members a direct way to make reports and keep our school safe.



At Sidney Public Schools our mission is to “Develop Confident and Powerful Learners”.  We want students to leave Sidney Public Schools with the confidence necessary to succeed at whatever they choose.  We want them to be great learners that can take on new challenges in the adult world and be successful.    


Our primary focus is and always will be the teaching and learning in the classroom.  However, we believe that students build confidence both inside and outside the classroom so we encourage students to be involved in activities at the middle school and high school.  We work hard to provide real life learning experiences for the elementary students as well. Our belief is that education provides the capability to seek opportunities in an ever changing world.


We are proud of our school district and our community.  We want to be great partners with the City, County and our parents because we know that when we all believe in each other great things will happen. Much of our success in Sidney is due to a “collective efficacy” throughout our district and community.  This simply means that we believe in each other and if we all work together great things will happen for our young people and will in turn brighten the future for the entire Sidney community.
