Cheyenne County is constantly looking toward the future in order to continually work for the betterment of the community, and there’s no better way to promote a successful future than to focus on the community’s young people. Cheyenne County’s schools supply excellent educational opportunities with rigorous curricula and unmatched extracurriculars to provide a solid building block for students’ futures.

Sidney Public Schools offer one preschool, four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school to Sidney residents. Sidney Public Schools offer a wide variety of extracurricular programs for students that include a variety of athletics along with other clubs and activities such as art club, science club, Future Business Leaders of America, school plays and student council.
