Campus High School serves the communities of Haysville and southwest Wichita, Kansas. Campus students may select from a wide array of courses in several departments including technology pathways.

Advanced Placement courses are offered in all core areas plus the Fine Arts Department and the Business Department. Advanced Placement classes are open to a wide variety of students including those enrolled in the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program.

Campus High School is a newly authorized International Baccalaureate School with the initial class beginning in the fall of 2013. The IB is open to any student who is willing to take on the challenge of a rigorous curriculum.

Campus High School believes that it is important to develop a nurturing environment for students in order for them to achieve academic goals. The Advisory program provides students with an annually updated curriculum aligned with grade level needs of the students. The purpose of Advisory is to create a mentoring relationship with one adult. Part of the Advisory time is spent with junior and senior Link Crew students, mentoring freshmen during their initial year of high school. This mentoring continues throughout the year as Link Crew members monitor the grades of their mentees and work with them to be successful during their high school years.

Campus believes that all students can be successful in high school and we expect all students to have fundamental academic skills mastered by the time they graduate. As our assessment scores increased, the graduation rate also rose to 89.6%. Our emphasis on both the affective and cognitive domains makes Campus High School worthy of Blue Ribbon status.
