Gretna Public Schools

Located between the larger cities of Omaha and Lincoln, Gretna Public Schools started out as a small district, but has grown to now serve more than 5,000 students.
Gretna Middle School

Still maintaining more of a small-town atmosphere, the fast-growing school district includes five elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. The high school is a designated Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education and boasts a high graduation rate. Through an agreement with Metropolitan Community College, the high school offers the option of earning college credit hours in certain courses. Many students enrolled in Gretna Schools are involved in extra-curricular sports, clubs and fine arts organizations. The entire district is additionally accredited by AdvancED.
