Greensburg, KS Schools

After all of the school facilities of the Kiowa County School District (USD-422) were destroyed in the May 4, 2007 tornado, the School District decided to rebuild all of its facilities in an expeditious, sustainable, high performance and progressive manner. BNIM was hired to design the new facility.

In its quest to embrace the spirit of the Greensburg community, the School District constructed new educational and public use facilities that accommodate and enhance its educational mission in an outstanding and high quality way. Rather than developing low, first-cost buildings, the District created facilities that are a source of pride and will bring value to the community for decades to come.

Facilities include Pre-K & Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, Library, Distance Learning Center, Science Labs, Main Gymnasium, Auxiliary Gymnasium, Art Music Wing, Courtyards, Playgrounds, Cafeteria & Kitchen, and Football Stadium/Track & Field Facilities
